Abstract:

Under NRL contract number N00173-77-C-0215, JAYCOR has performed an analytic and experimental study of some of the fundamental aspects of cyclotron masers gyrotrons. In particular, JAYCOR has designed and tested a high power gyrotron oscillator, and has designed and used a gyrotron testing facility. This report discusses the results of this project in detail. The JAYCOR-NRL contract includes the following work statement 1 Design and test a 200 kw cyclotron maser testing facility which includes the modulator, pulse transformer, power supply, superconducting magnet, and auxiliary subsystems. 2 Design and test maser components to include the RF interaction structure and output coupling network. 3 Design and test the RF instrumentation package to include a millimeter wave calorimetric load and an output mode analyzer. 4 Test and evaluate the magnetron injection gun to be used in the cyclotron maser. Compare measured performance with theoretical predictions and optimize gun performance. 5 Design and test the RF driver package. Essentially this work statement calls for the design of a laboratory for the testing of cyclotron masers and the design and test of the various components of an initial device.
