Abstract: A high-harmonic large orbit gyrotron (LOG) operating in the THz range has been designed and studied. Numerical simulations have shown that the 5th harmonic oscillation at 283 GHz can be selectively excited by proper choice of the external magnetic field and the electron beam current. The high harmonic operation of LOG is characterised by the considerable reduction of the required external magnetic field strength. The beam-wave interaction, the starting oscillation process and the ohmic loss of the designed LOG are also examined. The analysis procedure and the conclusion can form the basis for the study of even higher harmonics operation.

Keywords: Gyrotron, Harmonic resonance, Large orbit gyrotron (LOG), THz range.
