  • Improving the Efficiency of Quasi-Optical Bragg Reflectors
    • Authors: M. A. Khozin; G. G. Denisov; V. I. Belousov
      Abstract: In the analysis of propagation of wave beams in quasi-optical transmission lines, the loss rate and transformation of modes by various elements of the transmission line are of great importance. The effects occurring when a spatially bounded, obliquely incident wave beam is reflected from a Bragg resonator being a periodic, plane-layered medium with varied dielectric permittivity are considered. Such a reflector can be used as a frequency-selective element of the transmission line. Since the reflection coefficient of a plane wave from the Bragg reflector depends on its incidence angle, there occurs a transformation of the reflected beam. Analytical expressions for the beam displacement, the angle of deflection of the beam from the mirror reflection direction, and the wavefront curvature variation have been obtained. The influence of the mentioned effects on characteristics of the reflected wave beam in the main band of the Bragg reflector is numerically analyzed. The possibility of compensation for these distortions is considered.

  • The Features of the Frequency-Modulation Method When Studying the Shapes
           of the Spectral Lines of Nonlinear Absorption
    • Authors: G. Yu. Golubiatnikov; S. P. Belov; A. V. Lapinov
      Abstract: We briefly consider the method of the frequency (phase) modulation and signal detection at the second harmonic of the modulation frequency for recording and analyzing the spectral-line shapes. The precision sub-Doppler spectrometer in the millimeter- and submillimeter-wave ranges, which operated in the regime of nonlinear saturation of the spectral transitions in a standing wave (the Lamb-dip method), was used during the measurements. The influence of the saturation degree on the value and shape of the recorded frequency-modulated signals in the quadrature channels during the synchronous detection is demonstrated. Variation in the relationships among the signals determined by dispersion and absorption was observed. The necessity of allowance for the influence of the group-velocity dispersion and coherent effects on the shape of the recorded spectral lines is experimentally shown.

      Abstract: We have studied and calculated design variants of the slow-wave and electron-optical systems of a W-band traveling-wave tube. The manufactured experimental prototypes of such tubes were based on the slow-wave system of the “modified winding waveguide” type. Electric parameters of the prototypes were measured.

  • Production of Nanopowders by the Evaporation–Condensation Method Using a
           Focused Microwave Radiation
    • Authors: A. V. Vodop’yanov; D. A. Mansfeld; A. V. Samokhin; N. V. Alekseev; Yu. V. Tsvetkov
      Abstract: The formation of the WO3, SnO2 and ZnO metal oxide nanoparticles from vapors generated during evaporation of the material by a focused beam of microwave electromagnetic radiation with a frequency of 24 GHz and an energy flux density of more than 10 kW/cm2 is studied experimentally. The specific surface area of the nanopowders obtained over the entire range of the process parameters ranged from 1.9 to 8.3 m2/g, which corresponds to an average particle size of 430 to 95 nm. The possibility to control the dispersion composition of the powders is demonstrated. Increasing the quenching air flow increases the specific surface area of the powder obtained. The maximum evaporation rate of WO3 exceeded 100 g/h.

  • Sensitivity and Noise of Cold-Electron Bolometer Arrays

      Abstract: We perform experimental and theoretical studies of the series-parallel arrays of the cold-electron bolometers integrated into a cross-slot antenna and composed with an immersion silicon lens. This work is aimed at determining the efficiency of radiation absorption by bolometers, their volt-watt sensitivity, and equivalent noise power. The absorbed power was found using two independent methods, which ensured a better reliability of the results. The first method is based on comparing the experimental current-voltage characteristics of bolometers with the model based on the heat-balance equation. The second approach involves simulation of the electromagnetic properties of the system including the antenna, the lens, the bandpass filters, and the radiation source. The discrepancy among the results obtained using various methods does not exceed 30%. Optimization of the experimental setup is proposed to reach the photon-noise detection regime.

  • A Compact Neutron Source for Boron Neutron Capture Therapy
    • Authors: S. V. Golubev; I. V. Izotov; S. V. Razin; A. V. Sidorov; V. A. Skalyga
      Abstract: We propose a neutron generator scheme based on a high-current ion source with electron cyclotron resonance plasma heating by high-power millimeter-wave gyrotron radiation. The most promising application of this neutron generator is a medical one, namely, boron neutron capture therapy of oncological diseases. A possibility for using a multi-aperture extraction system for high-current ion beam generation to increase the total current is studied. It is shown that the parameters of the plasma flow leaving a magnetic trap permit the effective use of multi-aperture systems without a significant loss in the ion beam current density. Thus, the use of multi-aperture systems in the ion source of a neutron generator can significantly increase the total neutron yield.

  • Development of a High-Power Wideband Amplifier on the Basis of a
           Free-Electron Maser Having an Operating Frequency Near 30 GHz: Modeling
           and Results of the Initial Experiments
    • Authors: I. V. Bandurkin; D. E. Donets; A. K. Kaminsky; S. V. Kuzikov; E. A. Perel’shteyn; N. Yu. Peskov; A. V. Savilov; S. N. Sedykh
      Abstract: We develop a high-power wideband amplifier based on a free-electron maser for particle acceleration, which will be operated in the 30 GHz frequency band, on the basis of the LIU-3000 linear induction accelerator forming an electron beam with an electron energy of 0.8 MeV, a current of 250 A, and a pulse duration of 200 ns. As the operating regime, we chose the regime of grazing of dispersion curves, since, according to the modeling performed, it allows one to ensure an instantaneous amplification band of about 5–7% in an undulator with regular winding for an output radiation power at a level of 20 MW and a gain of 30–35 dB. The results of the first experiments studying this FEM-based scheme are presented, in which the specified power level is achieved in the range around 30 GHz, and fast tuning of ±0.5 GHz in the band of variations in the frequency of the master magnetron is demonstrated. Modeling shows that the use of the non-resonance trapping/braking regime, which is realized in an undulator with profiled parameters, allows one to expect an increase in the radiation power of up to 35–40 MW with simultaneous widening of the amplification band up to 30% under the conditions of the LIU-3000 experiments.

      Abstract: We present the results of creating a cooled microbolometer based on the cermet films of the silicon and chromium mixture. This material is used for manufacturing the freely hanging high-resistive microbolometers for the first time. The details of fabricating such microbolometers and the prospects for using cermet films to construct microbolometers are discussed. The first estimates of sensitivity of the fabricated microbolometers are given.

  • Pulse-Periodic Regimes of Kinetic Instabilities in the Non-Equilibrium
           Plasma of an Electron Cyclotron Resonance Discharge Maintained by
           Continuous-Wave Radiation of a 24 GHz Gyrotron
    • Authors: D. A. Mansfeld; M. E. Viktorov; A. V. Vodopyanov
      Abstract: We have experimentally discovered an instability, which manifests itself as precipitations of hot electrons occurring synchronously with generation of bursts of electromagnetic radiation, in the plasma of an electron cyclotron resonance discharge maintained by a high-power, continuous-wave radiation of a 24 GHz gyrotron, for the first time. The observed instability has the kinetic nature and is determined by the formation of the non-equilibrium velocity distribution of hot particles. Two possible explanations are proposed for the mechanism of wave excitation in a two-component plasma with a stationary source of non-equilibrium particles. The results of the studies performed are of interest for modeling of the dynamics of magnetospheric cyclotron masers.

      Abstract: In this work, we present the results of seasonal astroclimate observations at the RT-70 radiotelescope construction site on the Suffa Plateau (2400 m above sea level). Observations were performed automatically each 11 min round the year starting from November 2014. The shortand long-term laws of variations in the atmospheric-transparency parameters are considered and the statistical diagrams are developed. The statistical data characterizing the astroclimate and allowing one to predict the possibility of radio-astronomy observations in the transparency windows of the millimeter- and submillimeter-wavelength ranges are the basic result of this work.

  • Multichannel Ka-Band Microwave Oscillator Based on Frequency-Shifted
           Relativistic Backward-Wave Oscillators
    • Authors: M. I. Yalandin; K. A. Sharypov; M. S. Pedos; I. V. Romanchenko; V. V. Rostov; S. N. Rukin; M. R. Ul’maskulov; V. G. Shpak; S. A. Shunailov
      Abstract: Experiments on summation of linearly polarized Gaussian wave beams in free space from two and four synchronous nanosecond Ka-band relativistic backward wave oscillators (BWOs), each having an output power of about 200 MW with controllably shifted oscillator frequencies have been carried out. An about 0.5% frequency shift in one of the channels was equivalent to a one-period phase delay of the carrier frequency. In a two-channel version of the device, a full beat cycle was obtained for a pulse with quadratic (with respect to the number of sources) enhancement of the power flux density at the interference maximum of the integral directional pattern (DP). In the case of a four-channel device, a diagonal displacement of the DP lobes has been demonstrated.

  • Mode Competition Effect on Frequency Locking of a Multimode Gyrotron by a
           Monochromatic External Signal
    • Authors: V. L. Bakunin; G. G. Denisov; Yu. V. Novozhilova; A. P. Fokin
      Abstract: We study frequency locking of the gyrotron operating mode by a monochromatic external signal under conditions of competition of several modes. The calculations were performed for a megawatt-power 170-GHz gyrotron with the operating TE28.12 mode. Mode interaction of both equidistant and nonequidistant spectra is considered. Frequency detuning of the modes is comparable to the cyclotron resonance bandwidth. Influence of the external-signal power on the boundaries of the frequency locking zones is studied. The possibility to achieve a high orbital efficiency and broadband frequency tuning in the frequency-locking regime is considered.

      Abstract: We have developed a method for production of high-density MgAl2O4 ceramics characterized by low dielectric losses. The method is based on sintering of ultrafine, high-purity powder materials in the electromagnetic field of intense microwave radiation. The initial nanodimensional magnesium-aluminate powder was synthesized by the sol-gel method and sintered in a gyrotron complex operated at a frequency of 24 GHz. The results of studying the conditions and regimes of microwave sintering of MgAl2O4 ceramics are presented, along with its phase features, microstructural peculiarities, and mechanical and dielectric characteristics. The possibility of controlling the microstructure of the sintered material by varying the regime of RF heating is demonstrated.

  • Microwave Radiometric Complex for Studying the Thermal Structure of the
           Earth’s Atmosphere
    • Authors: V. G. Ryskin; A. A. Shvetsov; M. Yu. Kulikov; M. V. Belikovich; O. S. Bol’shakov; A. A. Krasil’nikov; L. M. Kukin; I. V. Lesnov; N. K. Skalyga; A. M. Feigin
      Abstract: We describe a microwave radiometric complex intended for remote passive monitoring of the atmospheric temperatures from the Earth’s surface. The complex consists of three spectroradiometers operating in a frequency range of 50–60 GHz, which covers the central part of the absorption band of molecular oxygen and its low-frequency slope. The radiometers have different spectral resolutions and allow one to simultaneously study the thermal structure of the surface air, the free troposphere, and the stratosphere. To ensure internal calibration of the intensity of the received atmospheric radiation, a built-in device of the modulator-calibrator type on the basis of the Schottky-barrier GaAs diodes is used. The complex is equipped with an automated system to control the measurement process, calibration, and preliminary data processing. Using the microwave sensing results, we intend to retrieve the atmospheric temperature profiles in an altitude interval of 0.05–55 km on the basis on the Bayesian approach to solving ill-posed inverse problems.

  • The 700–950 GHz Superconducting Receiving Structures for Radio
    • Authors: K. I. Rudakov; V. P. Koshelets; A. M. Baryshev; P. N. Dmitriev; A. V. Khudchenko
      Abstract: We have designed, fabricated, and tested the waveguide receiving element, which is based on the tunnel superconductor–insulator–superconductor structures, for the frequency range 790–950 GHz. Two Nb/AlN/NbN tunnel junctions are incorporated in a microstrip line consisting of the bottom NbTiN-film electrode with a thickness of about 300 nm and the top 500 nm-thick aluminum electrode. The production-process optimization allows one to ensure the following characteristics of these junctions: submicron area (0.5 μm2 for each junction), current density about 30 kA/cm2, and band gap width 3.2 mV. Such tunnel junctions ensure the receiver operation in a wide frequency range (700–950 GHz), which was confirmed by the Fourier transform spectroscopy and the noise-temperature measurements. At a frequency of 725 Hz, the corrected noise temperature of the receiver amounts to 120 K, which is only threefold greater than the quantum limit hf/kB, where h is the Planck’s constant, f is the frequency, and kB is Boltzmann’s constant. In the upper part of this frequency range, the noise temperature increases up to 390 K.

      Abstract: We study theoretically the mechanism of the formation of high-power ultrashort microwave pulses, which is based on the effect of passive mode locking in electron generators, whose feedback circuit includes a nonlinear saturable absorber (amplitude filter). The mechanism under consideration is an analog of the well-known method of generation of ultrashort pulses, which is used widely in laser physics. Nevertheless, realization of this method in electron generators has certain specific features connected with the motion of the active medium (electron flow). It is shown that being applied to vacuum electronics, this method is sufficiently universal, and various types of both relativistic and subrelativistic amplifiers operated in wavelength ranges from the centimeter to submillimeter ones can be used for actualization of ultrashort pulse generators as active elements. In the additional section, which acts as a saturable absorber, one can use either the Kompfner absorption effect, or the effect of cyclotron resonance absorption of radiation by a rectilinear electron beam. It is demonstrated on the basis of numerical simulation that the peak power of ultrashort pulses in electron generators with passive mode locking can exceed the power achieved in the stationary generation regimes significantly and, in some cases, the power of the electron flow.

  • Use of Quasiregular Resonator Cavities with Short Phase Correctors in
           Gyrotrons Operated at Higher Cyclotron Harmonics
    • Authors: I. V. Bandurkin; M. Yu. Glyavin; N. A. Zavolsky; Yu. K. Kalynov; I. V. Osharin; A. V. Savilov
      Abstract: We discuss the possibilities of using quasiregular resonator cavities with short irregularities, which ensure correction of the wave phase, in low-power gyrotrons operated at higher cyclotronfrequency harmonics. The use of such phase correctors can help with solving two problems, namely, increasing the selectivity of excitation of a higher cyclotron harmonic and decreasing the diffraction Q-factor of the gyrotron wave excited in an extended cavity.

  • Variations in Microwave Radiation of the Nighttime Mesospheric Ozone over
    • Authors: S. B. Rozanov; A. S. Zavgorodniy; A. N. Ignatyev; A. N. Lukin
      Abstract: We consider the instrumentation and methods for the nighttime ground-based measurements of the atmospheric-ozone emission line at a frequency of 142.175 GHz. The ozone-radiation spectra were measured in Moscow in the 2014–2016 cold months with a time resolution of about 2 min. We performed a frequency-time analysis of variations in the differences of the brightness temperatures of the ozone-emission line for the frequency offsets 0–50, 50–150, and 150–250 kHz from the line center. Variations with periods from 6 min to 3 h, which can be related to the wave propagation in the mesosphere and the lower thermosphere, were revealed using the data windows with halfwidths of 10–60 min.

      Abstract: Free electron lasers (FELs) are unique sources of electromagnetic radiation with tunable wavelength. A high-power FEL has been created at the G. I.Budker Institute for Nuclear Physics. Its radiation frequency can be tuned over a wide range in the terahertz and infrared spectral ranges. As the source of electron bunches, this FEL uses a multi-turn energy-recovery linac, which has five straight sections. Three sections are used for three FELs which operate in different wavelength ranges (90–240 μm for the first, 37–80 μm for the second, and 5–20 μm for the third ones). The first and the second FELs were commissioned in 2003 and 2009, respectively. They are used for various applied and research problems now. The third FEL is installed on the last, forth accelerator loop, in which the electron energy is the maximum. It comprises three undulator sections and a 40 m optical cavity. The first lasing of this FEL was obtained in the summer of 2015. The radiation wavelength was 9 μm and the average power was about 100 W. The design power is 1 kW at a pulse repetition rate of 3.75 MHz. Radiation of the third FEL will be delivered to user stations from the protected hall in the near future. The third FEL commissioning results are presented and the current status of the first and second FELs as well as their future development prospects are described.

  • Determination of the Trace-Gas Concentrations at the Altitudes of the
           Lower and Middle Mesosphere from the Time Series of Ozone Concentration
    • Authors: A. A. Nechaev; T. S. Ermakova; M. Yu. Kulikov
      Pages: 546 - 559
      Abstract: We present a statistical (Bayesian) approach to retrieving the concentrations of the most important mesospheric trace gases at altitudes of 50–75 km using the photochemical model based on the time series of ozone concentration, which are measured during the daylight hours in one day with the help of the ground-based passive microwave devices. Using the model noisy time series of ozone concentration with allowance for the realistic accuracy of its measurements in the mesosphere, which is ensured by the available ozonometers, the accuracy of retrieving the non-measurable mesospheric characteristics is studied as a function of the altitude and the time-series length.
