Megawatt gyrotrons are found to suffer from various parasitic oscillations, in particular, RF oscillations in the beam tunnel prior to the desired interaction zone (the cavity). This paper describes the experimental results from a gyrotron experiment which was dedicated to investigate parasitic oscillations in the beam tunnel and to verify improved beam-tunnel structures. A system for improved spectral measurements and a new analysis method are presented. The results verify theoretical predictions on the parasitic oscillations, and in effect validate the corresponding improved beam-tunnel structure. In addition, other types of parasitic oscillations were observed and explained.
