Self consistent analytic and numeric design for a set of electron guns with a high beams quality to be used in high power Ka-band klystrons are presented in this paper. The set of electron guns can be used in the high power Ka-band klystrons in order to feed linear accelerating structures at 36 GHz with an estimated 20 MW input power by achieving an effective accelerating electric field in the (100-150) MV/m range. In the framework of the Compact Light XLS project, a short Ka-band linearizer by… Expand
