Abstract
A Bragg reflector composed of periodic cylindrically symmetric corrugations can provide a reflection of nearly unity through the principles of constructive interference, resulting in a frequency selective resonator for overmoded high power oscillators as Gyro-TWT,CARM or FEL. Improved Bragg reflectors with Hamming- or Kaiser window distribution of the slot depth have been optimized using a scattering-matrix code. The features of such tapered corrugation amplitude are: high mode purity and ripple-free filter characteristics with predicable reflectivity. The field matching method (MAC) gives exact results even in the case when intercoupling resonances are close together and the simple coupled-mode theory is not valid.
