A linear theory using Laplace transforms which is applicable to both gyrotron traveling wave amplifiers (gyro-TWTs) and gyrotron backward-wave oscillators (gyro-BWOs) is presented. The validity of the linear theory is verified by comparing it with an existing nonlinear self-consistent theory based on a different approach. In conjunction with a time-dependent multimode particle simulation code, the linear theory is applied to study the stability of harmonic gyro-TWTs. It is shown that a harmonic gyro-TWT can be made stable to all forms of spontaneous oscillations by employing a multistage interaction structure and that it can generate power levels far in excess of those possible for a fundamental gyro-TWT. The linear bandwidth of a second-harmonic gyro-TWT amplifier is also calculated
