Abstract : The Magnicon is a high power, highly efficient microwave amplifier tube for use in powering the next generation of high gradient electron linear accelerators. In this paper, we discuss the design of a thermionic magnicon experiment to produce 50 MW at 11.4 GHz, using a 200 a, 500 kV beam from a thermionic electron gun.
