Paper Abstract

In an effort to expand the frontiers of high-energy physics, electron-positron colliders withcenter-of-mass energies approaching 1 TeV (and beyond) are being planned.1 These machines willrequire efficient, reliable, pulsed microwave amplifiers with peak power levels exceeding the state- of-the-art. The current linear collider standard is the 100 GeV Stanford Linear Collider,2 for whicha 1 ,us, 150 MW, S-Band klystron was developed.3 It is anticipated that comparable power levelswill be required in 10-20 GHz devices. Because klystron peak power scales (optimistically) withthe output wavelength squared, considerable enhancement is required.
