Experimental results from an 8-beam, 5-cavity multiple-beam klystron with 6% bandwidth


We describe the results of recent experiments with an eight- beam, five-cavity multiple-beam klystron (MBK). The electron gun is of the same design as used in our previous MBK and operates at a nominal cathode voltage of -45 kV and a total current of 32 A. The electrodynamic circuit is comprised of a two-gap input cavity, a two-gap idler cavity, two… (More)
