Summary form only given. The quasi-optical gyrotron is a possible source for electron cyclotron resonances heating of large fusion reactors. To fully exploit its potential, a sheet-beam electron gun has been utilized. The gun is a magnetron-injection gun modified for planar geometry. The authors show that the electrode synthesis technique can be modified to shape edge electrodes in such a way as to minimize edge effects. Results for such an electron gun design are shown.
