Abstract

Nuclear fusion energy is perhaps one of the most demanding challenges the scientific community is facing. Unfortunately, the plasma is affected by micro-turbulence, which is still not fully understood, but which can degrade plasma confinement. The 0.346 THz backward wave oscillator is the enabling device for a high-k plasma collective scattering diagnostic that will provide unprecedented insight on turbulence thereby contributing to the realization of fully operational fusion reactors. This paper describes the final fabrication phase of the 0.346 THz backward wave oscillator for the collective scattering diagnostic jointly performed in an international project, involving three leading institutions in vacuum electronics. The advancements in technology will open the route to new families of THz vacuum electron devices to enable new THz applications and provide industry with new advanced processes.
