A gyrotron traveling-wave amplifier (gyro-TWA) operating at W-band has been upgraded and experimentally measured. In this paper, the design and measurement of the upgraded input coupling system for the gyro-TWA is presented. In the measurement, the transmission coefficient of the coupler is at an optimal level of about -1 dB.
