Abstract : A detailed engineering design for a 20 percent bandwidth, 1 megawatt peak power output travelingwave amplifier is presented. A hollow electron beam operating at 100 kv and 60 amp is used in combination with a disc-loaded coaxial line circuit. Experimental data on the electron gun, the mode-suppressing attenuator and the rf circuit are presented along with preliminary data on the over-all tube assembly and dc operation. No rf gain or power output data are available. A number of design problems were solved in detail and these solutions are presented here. (Author)
