Abstract

We present a design study of a pulsed 600 GHz gyrotron operating at the second harmonic for a planned experiment based on a 12 T cryogen-free superconducting magnet and a Varian VUW-8010 electron gun. Threshold current studies and multimode simulations indicate that stable single operation at output powers over 10 kW is achievable.
