Cyclotron autoresonance maser (CARM) amplifiers are under investigation as a possible source of high-power (>100 MW), high-frequency (>10 GHz) microwaves for powering the next generation of linear colliders. A design for a high-power, short pulse, 17.136 GHz CARM amplifier, utilizing a 500 kV linear induction accelerator, is presented.
