Description: Varian has begun the development of a high-power gyrotron based on a whispering-gallery-mode interaction circuit. The first experimental tube has been designed to generate pulsed output powers up to 1 MW at a frequency of 140 GHz. The tube was also designed for CW operation at power levels of several hundred kilowatts. The overall design of the tube is discussed. Fabrication of the tube is nearing completion and initial tests on the tube will be carried out in the near future. 5 refs., 2 figs.
