Currently under development in our laboratory, a microwave generator (monotron) at 6.7 GHz will operate with a beam current of 16 A at 10 kV. For this, normally we employ an on-off power modulator that uses only a floating high voltage switch to discharge a capacitor through the device. However because of the high voltage isolation between the tube deck and control panel at the ground and the relatively low current of the tube cathode (10 A), we are proposing a new pulser design. In this… CONTINUE READING
