Demonstration of an S-band, 600-kW fundamental-mode multiple-beam klystron


We present initial experimental results from the successful operation of a 600-kW peak, fundamental-mode multiple-beam klystron (MBK). The eight-beam device operates at a cathode voltage of /spl sim/45 kV and a total beam current of /spl sim/32 A with an axial guiding magnetic field of 1.8-2.2 kG. In the absence of radio-frequency (RF) drive, the measured… (More)
