The design study of a 140 GHz, 100 W continuous wave gyroklystron amplifier is presented. The device is intended for use in Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) enhanced Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy experiments. The gyroklystron has five cavities and operates in the TE(0,2) mode with a low power electron beam. The design was performed using MAGY, a nonlinear code for modelling gyrotron devices. The design process of the gyroklystron starting from the linear theory to the optimization of the final design in MAGY has been described in detail. Stagger tuning was employed to broadband the device. The design yields 130 W peak power, 36 dB saturated gain, and a -3 dB bandwidth of over 1 GHz (0.75%) with a 15 kV, 150 mA electron beam having a beam pitch factor of 1.5, radius of 0.64 mm and calculated perpendicular momentum spread of 4%. Preliminary designs of the Magnetron Inject Gun (MIG), the input and output couplers, and the mode converter to transform the TE(0,2) operating mode to the HE(1,1) mode for low loss transmission of the output power are also presented. The design meets the specifications for the DNP experiment.
