Abstract: Abstract-There has been a drive in recent years to produce ultra-high power short microwave pulses f or a range of applications. These hig h power pulses can be produced by microwave pulse com pression. Sweepfrequency based microwave pulse co mpression using smooth bore hollow waveguides is one technique of passive pulse compression, however at very high pow ers this method has some limitation due to i ts operation close to cut-off. A special helical corrugation of a circular waveguide ensures an eigenwave wi…
