Abstract
A reflector-antenna synthesis procedure based on the principles of geometrical optics (GO) will be applied to the design of a quasi-optical converter which is used to transform the output of the whispering-gallery-mode (WGM) gyrotron to a freespace beam. The amplitude and phase distributions across both transverse dimensions of the free-space beam are specified as design parameters. The exact reflector surfaces which yield the desired output-beam characteristics are determined self consistently as the solutions of a system of first-order partial differential equations which we solve by progressive integration across the face of the reflectors. The synthesis procedure is anticipated to improve the output-beam characteristics of previous Vlasov-type converter designs where the power distribution could be manipulated in only one dimension across the beam which results in relatively poor free-space propagation charasteristics and reduced coupling efficiency into guided wave systems.
