The double corrugated waveguide (DCW), incorpo- rating a row of metallic pillars on each side of the electron beam, is demonstrated as a promising slow-wave structure for millimeter wave, Ka-band, traveling wave tubes (TWTs). Different configurations, including novel bent couplers with tapered pillars, have been designed, realized, and validated by S-parameter measurements. The design and simulation of a DCW TWT demonstrated very good performance in the frequency band 32–37 GHz. The ease of fabrication and assembly make the DCW a suitable basis for a new generation of millimeter wave TWTs.
