Paper Abstract

We are developing an L-band (1.3 GHz) high-current relativistic klystron (5 kA, 500 kV) for repetitive (200 pps) pulsing. We have designed and tested an extraction cavity that removes energy from the modulated electron beam and radiates it into an anechoic chamber in the TM01 mode. Peak power in excess of 450 MW has been measured for a single shot and 275 MW for a sustained burst producing 3.3 kW of average power. This klystron is now being transitioned to a long pulse (> 500 ns), single shot facility.
