The cyclotron autoresonance maser (CARM) is shown to be a promising ECH source for heating magnetically confined fusion plasmas in the next generation tokamak, the 100 kG CIT. A 2 MW, 560 GHz, 700 kV, 7 A, TE01, magnetically tapered CARM amplifier design suitable for heating the future CIT has been developed and optimized. Analytic and numerical simulation results will be presented.
