Abstract : Conversion of electron beam energy into high power microwave energy is effected within the cavity of a Klystron device to which the electron beam is accelerated from a continuous supply source through an ion focussing channel. Ion focussing is achieved by establishment of a preionized background plasma within the channel to modulate the current of the electron beam in response to wake field effects and cause bunching of the electron beam during propagation to the Klystron device....
