Paper Abstract

We have begun a program of repetitive operation of a high-current relativistic klystron on the CLIA facility at Physics International. Potential problems of beam formation have been investigated and found not to be a limitation at repetition rates as high as 200 Hz. We are presently beginning initial testing in repetitive mode of a 5 kA, 500 kV klystron, designed and tested in single shot mode at the Naval Research Laboratory. Initial results at 10 Hz do not indicate any problems that are inherently repetitive in nature.
