Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


We presents a simulation study of mode competition in a highly overmoded gyrotron cavity, modeled after the approximate design parameters of a 280 GHz, 1 MW TH+42,7-mode gyrotron at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). This study addresses 1) the problem of achieving gyrotron operation in the design mode, and at a value of magnetic detuning sufficient to achieve high efficiency operation, and 2) the mode purity of the final state.
