Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

    This paper presents the design and measurement of a HE11 mode multilayer window for a W-band gyro-amplifier. The window acts to seal the vacuum inside the amplifier whilst coupling out microwave power with minimal reflection and absorption. The Gaussian-like HE11 mode is used in order to achieve the lowest reflection through the window. Operating over 90-100 GHz the simulated reflection of this window is better than -30 dB. The design, simulation and microwave measurement of the window is presented.
