Abstract

The results of 3-fold helically corrugated waveguide microwave pulse compression experiments are presented. A pulse of 80 ns duration having a power of 5.6 kW is compressed into a 140 kW peak power pulse of 1.5 ns duration. To enhance the power capabilities of the microwave pulse compressor a larger diameter 5-fold helical waveguide structure was studied; the eigenwave dispersion is discussed using numerical, analytical, and experimental techniques.
