Abstract
A design of a MAGICTRAC (Microwave Antenna for Whispering-Gallery-Mode Conversion using a Twist Reflector Antenna Converter) device is presented for use on the MTX (Microwave Tokamak Experiment) transport system. The MAGICTRAC device, consisting of a mode converting waveguide taper and three metal reflectors, transforms the TE15,2 circular waveguide mode output of a VARIAN Associates 140 GHz gyrotron into a free-space Gaussian-like beam with < 95% efficiency. Dimensions of the MAGICTRAC are chosen to produce a beam matched to the MTX quasi-optical transport system.
