Abstract : The feasibility of designing a permanent magnetic field system for the Phillips Laboratory Relativistic Klystron Oscillator (RKO) was investigated. It was determined that it is nearly possible to obtain the desired 0.5 T magnetic field within the size and geometry configuration constraints. However, whereas the current RKO design requires a uniform field for a 60 cm length, the permanent magnet design will provide a uniform field for 52 cm. The existing RKO magnet system has a weight of about 600 kg for the magnet, plus an additional 1500 kg for the laboratory power supply currently in use. The design weight for the permanent magnet presented here is about 800 kg total. A simpler, straight solenoid system was only briefly considered. Modest magnet improvements of a few percent may be expected in the next few years but large scale improvements are not expected.
