Abstract

The aim of this project was to prove that the quasi-optical gyrotron is a useful and reliable tool for fusion plasma heating. Two resonators inside the vacuum vessel make it possible to operate it at 92 GHz, as well as at 185 GHz. The power expected at the fundamental is 500 kW, at a pulse length of 10 ms. Many new features, such as diffraction coupling mirrors and attenuated meshed beam ducts, are introduced to guarantee reliable operation.
