The gyrotron traveling-wave tube (gyro-TWT) is a millimeter-wave amplifier based on the electron cyclotron maser instability. It is a device of increasing importance because of its power and bandwidth capabilities. The current paper presents a brief overview of the gyro-TWT research over the past quarter of a century. Advances made by different groups employing various schemes are discussed and achieved performances are surveyed.
