The gyroklystron is a potential source for driving advanced accelerators, such as the proposed 300-500 GeV electron-positron collider. Sources with frequencies higher than those commonly used in accelerators (e.g. 2.9 GHz) are desired because higher accelerating gradients can be created, thus reducing the length and cost of the device. Because of the inherent advantages of gyrotrons, such a source is expected to be able to produce significantly higher power at high frequencies than that possible with a linear beam tube. A 10 GHz, 30 MW gyroklystron is being developed at the University of Maryland to demonstrate this potential.[1]
