    Abstract

    The components of a W-band gyro-TWA including input coupler, output window, corrugated output mode converter, pulsed power system and water-cooled beam dump are being upgraded to achieve an output power of 5 kW and a high pulse repetition rate of 2 kHz for cloud radar applications. Latest results of the W-band gyro-TWA with a helically corrugated waveguide and a cusp electron gun are presented.
