The design and experiment of a ka-band second harmonic gyroklytron amplifier are reported. The three-cavity 35-GHz second harmonic gyroklystron operates in the TE021 circular electric mode. Based on the numerical simulation, a three-cavity, second harmonic gyroklystron amplifier prototype has been fabricated. Experiments show a peak output power of 212 kW at 35 GHz with a 3-dB bandwidth of 155 MHz (0.44%) when utilizing a 58 kV, 23 A, v/vP = 1.45 electron beam from a magnetron injection gun. The efficiency is approximately 16%, and the gain is about 24 dB.
