Abstract
A mode converter for whispering gallery mode gyrotrons has been designed and tested. Experiments were performed on a megawatt power level, 3μs pulsed gyrotron operating in the TE16,2,1 whispering gallery mode at 148 GHz. The converter consists of a helically cut waveguide launcher and a doubly curved reflector designed to focus the radiation into a Gaussian beam. The launcher and reflector were designed using geometric optics. The experiments show that the converter focuses 80±7% of the incident radiation in the TE16,2,1 mode in a focal spot.
