    Abstract

    Latest development and experimental study of a W-band gyro-TWA with a helically corrugated waveguide and a cusp electron gun are presented. With an input seed signal from an 1.5 W, 90-96 GHz solid state source a gain of 27 dB was measured from the experiment. The bandwidth of the gyro-TWA was measured to be at least 5 GHz
