Abstract
Work is continuing on a high-current relativistic klystron amplifier (RKA) with the goal of producing 1 kJ per pulse with a 1 microsecond(s) pulsewidth and a peak power of 1 GW. The three cavity tube has already produced pulses with more than 150 J and over 450 MW peak power. The original output cavity was thought to be limiting the performance, and a new cavity has been designed, built, and is now on-line and being conditioned up towards high power. Current experimental results are presented.
