On the Theory of Synchronization of a Two-Mode Electron Maser with a Hard Excitation

Background and Objectives: Medium-power (10–100 W) THz continuous-wave electron cyclotron masers (gyrotrons) are of great interest for many applications, such as spectroscopy with dynamic nuclear polarization, plasma diagnostics, non-destructive testing, remote detection of radioactive materials, biomedical applications, etc. For these applications, a high frequency stability is required, with the possibility of frequency tuning within 1–2 GHz.
