Manufacturing of a 263 GHz continuously tunable gyrotron


Rozier, Y., et al. Manufacturing of a 263 GHz continuously tunable gyrotron. in Vacuum Electronics Conference (IVEC), 2013 IEEE 14th International. 2013.


A 263 GHz gyrotron dedicated to Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) enhanced Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy has been designed by EPFL and manufactured by Thales. With this device, we have demonstrated an output power up to 160 W in continuous wave. Design and main experimental results are discussed in this paper.
