Studies towards a 1.5 MW, 140 GHz CW gyrotron, with the capability of MW-class operation also at 175 GHz, are ongoing at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in view of a possible future upgrade of the ECRH system of the stellarator W7-X. The upgrade of the existing 1.0 MW, 140 GHz European gyrotron for W7-X has been chosen as a development path. Detailed designs of the cavity, the non-linear uptaper, and the quasi-optical launcher for the upgraded gyrotron have been obtained and have been validated numerically. In parallel, a mode generator, intended for low-power tests of the quasi-optical mode converter system of the upgraded gyrotron, has been designed, manufactured, and successfully tested.
