An experimental and design study has been commenced for a dual-frequency gyrotron (28 and 35 GHz). The target output power at 28 GHz is 2 MW. For a modified 28 GHz 1 MW gyrotron, an output power of 1.25 MW and operation of 0.6 MW for 2 s have been achieved at 28 GHz. For the 35.45 GHz oscillation test, a cavity oscillation power of 1.2 MW and an efficiency of 33.9% have been confirmed by considering the calculated transmission efficiency of 72%. These results support the development of dual-frequency gyrotrons for lower frequency ranges.
