Abstract

Klystrons employing traditional monotonic electron bunching are capable of efficiencies up to ~70%. The use of the core oscillation method (COM) of electron bunching has predicted a significant improvement in efficiency towards 90%. Here, we document refinements on previously presented geometries, with PIC simulations predicting efficiencies up to 85%.
