Abstract
The efficiency and output power of our 140 GHz MW gyrotron are greatly improved using a two-section cavity. In both TE15,2 and TE16,2 modes the gyrotron can produce more than 1 MW power at the efficiency of about 30%. The maximum power of 1.2 MW at 32% efficiency is produced at 148 GHz with TE16,2 mode. All these experimental results are quite reproducible. New designs of high efficiency cavities are ongoing, including the design of coaxial cavities.
