Paper Abstract

A high-current relativistic klystron amplifier (RKA) is being developed with the goal of producing 1 kJ per pulse with a 1 microsecond(s) pulsewidth and a peak power of 1 GW. The three cavity tube is fully assembled and is undergoing high power testing. Peak power levels as high as 400 MW have been produced so far. Current experimental results are presented.
