Abstract
The proposed program is for the design of a multiple-beam electron gun and beam transport system suitable for integration with a novel amplifier capable of generating more than 2 kW of output power over a very broad bandwidth. As part of the proposed effort, beam phasespace from gun design will be imported into large signal codes and/or PIC codes to optimize beam-wave interaction. Amplifier size and weight will also be optimized as an integral part of the proposed work. Based on the design study, a mechanical layout of the beamstick will be prepared for evaluation for evaluation by Government personnelat the end of the program .
