Abstract
We discuss basic Relativistic Klystron Amplifier physics. We show that in the intense space- charge regime the maximum power extraction does not coincide with the maximum harmonic bunching. In addition, we show that as the beam is bunched, the additional power stored in the Coulomb fields does not add significantly to the overall power extraction. Because of these effects, the power extraction at 1.3 GHz for a 500 kV, 5 kA beam with reasonable beam-to- wall spacing is limited to around 35%.
