The preliminary design of a Ka-band, second harmonic, three cavities gyroklystron amplifier is presented. The beam-wave interaction in the second harmonic gyroklystron amplifier is studied by using a particle-in-cell code, and the validity of the design of the microwave circuit is also discussed. The results show that this gyroklystron can produce an output peak power of over 200kW with 20dB gain and 20% maximum efficiency at 35GHz.
