A 95 GHz, fourth harmonic gyro oscillator is being investigated at Litton. The design uses the advanced centerpost (ACP) gun. This gun produces an axis-encircling beam which interacts with the rf fields in an 8-vaned magnetron cavity. Four of the vanes have slots in their outside diameters that couple into a coaxial cavity. Radiation is extracted from the coaxial cavity by WR-10 waveguide. flux enclosed by the annular cathode was calculated using the first equation (Busch's theorem). The POISSON simulation was adjusted to give this value of flux. The correct position of the solenoid pole piece was vital. It was positioned at the axial position where the conically convergent beam crossed the desired beam radius. Excellant simulation results were achieved with a single sweep of the throw and angle of the beam.
