Gyrotron - Interaction analysis and components

The interaction analysis and components group of the IHM mainly develops simulation tools to realistically describe the behaviour of a gyrotron. The propagation of an accelerated electron beam in a magnetic field, its interaction with a microwave field and finally the impact of the electrons on the collector are taken into account. Further simulation programs deal with the design of quasi-optical components for the optimal coupling of the microwave out of the gyrotron.
