Abstract:

The purpose of this memorandum is to make the CTR community aware of the relevance of ongoing research and development of a new class of high-power, millimeter-wave generators at NRL. The generators have been called electron cyclotron masers in the U.S. and gyrotrons in the Soviet Union. In the near future approximately 1 year, cyclotron masers could be available that have immediate applicability in tokamak research for such purposes as the following local heating experiments preionization test wave launching and measurement of trapped-electron collision frequency. On a longer timescale, advanced cyclotron masers could be developed which would be useful in bulk plasma heating, and in the measurement of tokamak ion temperature. Author
