Abstract

The quasioptical gyrotron (QOG) is under development at the Naval Research Laboratory as a tunable, high power source of millimeter-wave radiation[1]. A recent gyroklystron experiment has demonstrated operation as an amplifier, a free-running oscillator, a mode-primed oscillator, and a phase-locked oscillator. Two mode selection techniques, alpha priming and mode priming, have been shown to increase the frequency detuning and efficiency of the operating mode in the gyroklystron. These two effects are also observed in the time-dependent, multimode computer simulations, where it is shown that the gyroklystron is operating in the hard excitation region of parameter space.
