An experimental study of a resonance microwave (3-cm-range) compressor with gas insulation and energy output through a superdimensional coaxial interference switch is reported. The rated parameters of the compressor are output signal power ∼25 MW, signal duration 2 ns, gain 26 dB, and efficiency ∼57%. A gain of 20 dB was achieved at a peak output signal power of 12 MW, signal duration of 2 ns, efficiency of ∼24%, and traveling wave power of 24 MW.
