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.

    Abstract

    A W-band gyrotron traveling wave amplifier (gyroTWA) based on a helically corrugated interaction region achieved an unsaturated output power of 3.4 kW with a gain of up to 37 dB and a 3 dB frequency bandwidth of at least 5.5 GHz. In the experiments it was found that the gyro-TWA can be operated with a range of different electron beams. Also the frequency agility of the gyro-TWA was demonstrated by the amplification of multi-frequency signals.
