The purpose of this program is to develop a klystron amplifier operating at 8 kMc and delivering one megawatt of CW power. Two long-pulse interim tubes were tested but neither achieved significant average power levels. The development of output windows for these high-average power tubes is discussed. Test results on a short pulse tube having a two-gap penultimate cavity are summarized. Further development work on extended-interaction buncher cavities is described. A theoretical analysis of some large-signal aspects of the excitation of an extendedinteraction cavity by an electron beam is included. Author
