About this book

The gyrotron is a powerful source of coherent radiation that has experienced significant improvement since its invention. Today  gyrotrons are capable of delivering hundreds of kilowatts of power at microwave and millimeter wavelengths, and they have important applications ranging from the electron cyclotron resonance heating of fusion plasmas to industrial and scientific applications and communications. Furthermore, the exciting potential applications of these devices and their derivatives span an even wider range of technologies. Drawing on the author's wide experience, this book gives a comprehensive review of the state of the art in gyrotron technology, covering the theory, design and applications. It will be a valuable resource for all engineers and scientists working with and developing high-power microwave devices. The book includes an extensive references list which provides an excellent guide to the related literature.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The subjects of this new text, namely ‘gyrotrons’, are important vacuum electronic devices that are capable of providing megawatt (MW) continuous power efficiently at millimetre-wave frequencies. … The authors write extremely well and they focus clearly on the main issues. … It will certainly be a valuable text for graduate students … . For professional physicists and engineers already working with gyrotrons … this book is highly recommended. … This is a book that anyone setting out to work with gyrotrons … should read." (Professor A.D.R. Phelps, Contemporary Physics, Vol. 46 (3), 2005)

"This book is a rather comprehensive course on gyrotrons … . The reader will appreciate the many tables and clear figures, discussions of accuracy, practical and technical considerations on conflicting requirements and on imperfections, and the 325 references. This generally well written and typeset volume is a good textbook to catch up with current progress. It should find its way to the office of engineers and specialized scientists, as well as of Ph.D. students, teachers and researchers … ." (Yves Elskens, Physicalia, Vol. 28 (4-6), 2006)
