Abstract
Future plasma heating experiments using electron cyclotron waves call for gyrotrons capable of delivering output powers at the 0.5 - 1.0 MW level at frequencies around 140 GHz. To reduce the ohmic losses (in the cavity wall) at such high output powers to manageable values and to reduce the mode competition problem, a highly overmoded resonator is required to operate the tube in an asymmetric mode. As a planned step towards a 1 MW tube, following the TE10,4 experiments [1], a gyrotron working in a TE22,n mode (with n=4,5,6) with an internal quasi-optical mode converter will be considered (see Fig. 1). Results of Russian experiments indicate that these modes are promising candidates for 1 MW cw operation [2, 3].
