A new high-voltage, intense-beam, Kaband gyrotronexperiment is underway using a 350-400-keV 0.5-1-kA beam from a short-pulse Febetron pulser. High-power operation at 35 GHz has been observed, with 20 MW (±3 dB) produced at - 8.5-percent efficiency in a “whispering-gallery” TE62 mode. Operation in other modes and at other frequencies has also been studied.
