Abstract
Varian is carrying out the development of high-power, CW gyrotrons at frequencies ranging from 100-140 GHz. Initial test vehicles at 140 GHz have been designed to generate short-pulse power levels of 1 MW and up to 400 kW CW. Thus far, short-pulse power levels of 1040 kW have been measured at 38 % efficiency and average powers of 200 kW have been achieved. Output power levels of 400 kW have been obtained for pulse durations of 0.5 sec.
