Abstract : A novel method of auto-modulating an intense relativistic electron beam has been demonstrated. The modulation is accomplished by passing the electron beam through a series of cavities that are inserted into a conventional drift tube. Experimental results indicate that the current is modulated at a frequency of 500 MHz at a relative modulation amplitude exceeding 80%. (Author)
