Abstract: At Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe (FZK) R&D investigations are performed both on a 2 MW, 170 GHz coaxial cavity gyrotron and on stepwise frequency tunable 1 MW gyrotrons. In case of the coaxial gyrotron the previously used experimental tube has been modified for operation at 170 GHz in order to verify the design of the main components (electron gun, cavity and RF output system) of a corresponding industrial prototype which is under development in cooperation between EURATOM Associations together with European tub…
