Paper Abstract

The operation of the Relativistic Klystron Amplifier (RKA) was extended to higher frequencies. A 5 kA, 4 cm-diameter, 0.5 MeV Intense Relativistic Electron Beam (IREB) was fully modulated at 3.5 GHz. The RF from this IREB was extracted into a coaxial transmission line, in a TEM mode, and subsequently converted adiabatically into a rectangular TE11 mode. Finally, the RF was radiated into the atmosphere through a rectagular horn sealed with a lucite vacuum window. In a related experiment a 5 kA IREB was self-modulated by a mechanism similar to the RKA at a frequency of 8 GHz.
