Paper Abstract

At the University of Maryland, we have been performing a sequence of experiments to determine thesuitability of gyroklystrons for linear collider applications. Initial experiments with six different two- cavity' and four three-cavity2 fundamental mode gyroklystrons have produced about 27 MW of power in1 its pulses at 9.87 GHz with 32% efficiency and gains near 40 dB. A program to modify the final two- cavity circuit for amplification studies at the second harmonic is well underway.3 In this paper wesummarize test results of the first four configurations.
