Abstract
In present quasi-optical (Q.O.) gyrotrons, the microwave power is coupled out by edge diffraction. Results of cold tests and hot tests show that the output is non-Gaussian. Recently, we have tested successfully output couplers using a grating reflector which replaces one of the resonator mirrors. This type of coupling produces almost perfect Gaussian output patterns so that one can utilize an additional perfectly reflecting mirror to focus efficiently the output microwave beam into a corrugated HE11 waveguide.
