Currently, klystrons which employ monotonic bunching offer efficiencies on the order of 70%. Through the use of the core oscillation electron bunching mechanism, numerical simulations have predicted klystrons with efficiencies of up to 90%. In this paper, we present PIC simulations of such geometries operating at a frequency of 800 MHz.
