    "3D printing" or "Additive Manufacturing" has been used to construct a cylindrical Periodic Surface Lattice (PSL) quickly, efficiently and relatively inexpensively. Millimeter wave output of 130 ± 30 kW was measured at a frequency of ~80 GHz. Further experiments are in progress using an upgraded system.
