Experimental results to-date will be presented from a developmental effort to a produce a J- band (5.85 - 8.2 GHz) relativistic klystron amplifier (RKA) of the high current Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) genealogy. The nominal experimental parameters of this RKA are: V0 approximately equals 600 kV; I0 approximately equals 2 - 4 kA; Bz approximately equals 1.5 T; (tau) beam approximately equals 300 ns; vin approximately equals 6.6 GHz; Pin <EQ 500 kW. Because of the smaller component sizes which accompany this frequency ((lambda) approximately equals 4.5 cm as compared with (lambda) approximately equals 30 cm for the bulk of other RKA research efforts), much of the discussion will concentrate on the physical principles, fabrication issues, and experimental pitfalls associated with scaling the RKA design.
