Abstract

Waveguide with a helical corrugation of the inner surface has the desirable properties of optimised dispersion, operation far from cut-off and high breakdown field strength which make it an excellent medium for passive pulse compression. New compression measurements at both milli-watt and kilowatt powers using an optimised frequency modulation of the input pulse will be presented and discussed.
