Abstract : It is shown that by just bending the dift region of a two cavity klystron into a circular arc, the current bunching near the output cavity is significantly enhanced. This increase in the bunching results from the negative mass behavior of a rotating electron beam. This device thus distinguishes from the conventional klystron as the AC space charges in the latter device adversely affect the grouping of electrons. Operations with both low voltage and high voltage beams are suggested. (Author)
