OPEN RESONATOR FOR QUASI-OPTICAL GYROTRONS - STRUCTURE OF THE MODES AND THEIR INFLUENCE
The influence of the resonator geometry on the design of quasi-optical gyrotrons is presented. Basic equations and relevant properties of quasi-optical resonators are reviewed. Since confocal resonators radiate an equal amount of power from each mirror, non-confocal resonators have to be used in order to maximize the output-coupling on one side. Technical constraints on ohmic power losses and mirror diameter are discussed. Using numerical solutions of the quasi-optical resonator equations, the influence of the actual electromagnetic field profile on the electronic efficiency is calculated for several cases.
