Abstract:

Nonlinear current modulation of a relativistic electron beam is achieved by its propagation without interruption through a resistive wall type of drift tube assembly within a Klystron amplifier. Maximized beam current modulation is thereby attained for a beam propagation distance within a shortened drift tube.
