Abstract : A Mumetal flux shield and core iron anode were constructed that resulted in less than 3 gauss at the location of the cathode when the gap field is 4500 gauss. The corners of the discs in the disc-loaded waveguide circuit were rounded to reduce the danger of RF arcing. The effects on the circuit bandwidth and match were measured. After some difficulty, an electroformed circuit and matching waveguides were completed. (Author)
