Paper Abstract

A two-beam configuration of the relativistic klystron amplifier (RKA) was developed. This configuration employs two annular coaxial electron beams instead of a single one. The interaction of this double beam with the 2-cavity RKA structure, operating at a frequency of 3.5 GHz, led to an energy feedback mechanism between the cavities via reflexing electrons, resulting in a large and stable amplitude current modulation.
