    Abstract

    Latest results of a W-band gyro-TWA with a helically corrugated waveguide and a cusp electron gun for operation at a high pulse repetition rate are presented. Performance upgrades of input coupler, output window, corrugated horn, pulsed power system and beam collector with water-cooling capability were realized. With an input seed signal from an 1.5 W, 90-96 GHz solid state source the amplification gain and minimum bandwidth were measured from the experiment.
