Abstract

The magnicon is a scanning-beam microwave amplifier that is being developed as a high power, highly efficient microwave source for use in powering the next generation of high gradient electron linear accelerators. In this paper, we present a progress report on a new thermionic magnicon experiment designed to produce more than 50 MW at 11.4 GHz, using a 210 A, 500 kV beam from an ultrahigh convergence thermionic electron gun driven by a rep-rated modulator. This new design has a predicted efficiency in excess of 60%.
