Abstract : This report on the high perveance gun study program includes the results of an investigation conducted in two primary areas. The first area involved experimental verification of the magnetic field plot which was derived from the computer studies and upon which the inverted magnetron injection gun design was based. The result of this investigation revealed a large discrepancy between the derived values and the experimental values of the magnetic field, due to an oversight in describing the boundary conditions of the magnetic field on the resistance network analogue. This discrepancy was significant enough to require an electrical redesign of the basic gun structure. The second area investigated during this report period was concerned with finding a suitable magnetic field about which a satisfactory inverted magnetron injection gun design could be made. An intensive investigation during which numerous magnetic field plots were obtained experimentally, resulted in a magnetic pole piece design which would form a suitably diverging magnetic field when used in conjunction with a solenoid. Despite the change in the electrical gun design, no changes in the klystron design objectives were made and the new gun will be designed to conform to the same electrical characteristics set forth in the previous report.
