Abstract
Design of a depressed collector system for a quasi-optical gyrotron, which had a severe constraint on the maximum allowable radius of the collector region is outlined. The needs for unwinding of spent beam and for energy sorting could be accommodated by precise control of the magnetic field profile, especially in the collector region. Techniques used for defining and obtaining such profiles; and for dovetailing the profile with the collector geometry are discussed. Results on profiles and electron trajectories are presented, which demonstrate the feasibility of the design. From primary electron trajectories a collector efficiency of up to 68% has been calculated for a three collector design.
