Abstract
Very high power transistorized RF amplifiers are promising for future DOE accelerators including Project X and others, but the complexity and cost must be reduced. The concept under investigation is effectively scalable to megawatt power levels. A novel solid-state amplifier based on an integrated resonant cavity combiner will combine the power output of many high power transistors in one step. The simple and rugged configuration leads to massive reductions in the complexity of RF connections and coolant lines. These improvements will reduce cost and improve field reliability. Commercial Applications/Benefits: The new technology will be applicable to all users of high power, narrowband RF and microwave sources. This includes widespread industrial microwave heating applications as well as many scientific applications in addition to particle accelerators
