Abstract:

The work described in this dissertation deals with measurements made of the ion current draining to the cathode which is the first stage of research which will eventually explore the relationship between drainage and the noise effects in the klystron by simultaneous measurements. This final design goal required that modifications be made to the klystron without affecting its RF performance and a large part of the time spent on this study was involved with these modifications and designing and building a measurement system.
