    Abstract

    A low-power test system using a vector network analyzer is constructed to evaluate the performance of phase correcting mirrors in a matching optics unit (MOU). The MOU is used in order to facilitate the good coupling of a millimeter wave beam from a gyrotron into corrugated waveguides. The newly developed diagnostic system allows us to make measurements not only of intensity-, but also of phase-profiles of millimeter wave beams and opens a new range of possibilities for designing and testing high-precision quasi-optical systems. Low-power tests are carried out to evaluate the performance of the newly designed MOU by reversely injecting a Gaussian beam from the output port of the MOU. The output beam from the input port of the MOU is measured with the analyzer. In this inverse process, the injected Gaussian beam should be converted to the real beam pattern radiated from the gyrotron. Using correlation analysis, the measured- and calculated-electric fields are compared in their amplitude- and phase-profiles. Good agreement between the measurement and the calculation is obtained. Therefore, it is judged that the phase-correcting mirrors in the MOU will work correctly in upcoming high-power tests.
