Abstract
We have increased the energy from the Varian-HDL, conventional-emission, high-power magnetron to greater than 125 Joules/pulse by operating at 5.4-microsecond(s) pulse widths. We have also demonstrated 250-Hz repetition rate operation for 200-pulse bursts, resulting in 8-kW average power. In addition, a pair of these magnetrons has been phase-locked to an RF- isolated, low power driver source. Excellent phase stability of several degrees has been achieved. We report on the results of these recent experiments.
