Abstract
ABSTRACT: We propose to develop a V-Band Microwave Power Module (MPM) based on a overmoded high power TWT amplifier with an overmoded interaction circuit employing multiple beams. The higher gain and output power provided by this novel TWT will enable highly linear operation with power added efficiency exceeding 30%. BENEFIT: The proposed TWT amplifier or the MPM can be employed for commercial satellite communication and high bandwidth digital radio links. The innovative overmoded circuit will also enable the scaling of TWT technology in to the terahertz frequency range where a number of scientific applications are currently being pursued.
