Abstract: The generation of millimeter wave radiation from the interaction of a rotating electron beam (2 MeV, I kA, 5 nsec) with an azimuthally periodic wiggler magnetic field has been studied experimentally. Calculations of the effects of the wiggler magnetic field on the single particle electron orbits are presented, together with experimental measurements of the effects of the wiggler field on the electron beam. Narrow-band radiation at power levels in excess of200 kW has been observed at 88 and 175 GHz for wiggler fields with 6.28 and 3.14 cm periods, respectively. The radiation frequency spectra for various experimental configurations are presented, and results are compared with theoretical expectations.
