We present a study of the feasibility of continuous wave (CW) operation of a 140-GHz conventional cavity gyrotron at high power levels operating in the TE31,8- and TE25,10-modes. The question of mode selection is discussed, and a possible design of such a gyrotron with beam energy up to 90 keV and a current of 60-70 A is given. We find that it should be possible to operate a 140-GHz gyrotron at power up to 2 MW if a sufficiently high-order mode is used, although CW power may be somewhat lower.
