Abstract
Recent experimental results, supporting simulations, and design modeling are presented from a developmental effort to produce a long pulse (approximately 1 microsecond(s) ) J-band (5.85 - 8.2 GHz) relativistic klystron amplifier (RKA) of the high current NRL genealogy. This RKA is designed to operate at approximately 6.6 GHz, with a desired rf output approximately 700 MW. Conversion of electron beam energy to microwave energy is obtained by a mock magnetically insulated coaxial converter which, in various incarnations, can be made to be either a cavity gap extractor or an inverse cathode.
