Overview

After summarizing the development of ballistic and space charge theory, the authors concentrate on the klystron's more recent evolution which consists of high reliability, long operating life and broad frequency coverage. Discusses common problems in klystron design and how to minimize them. Emphasizes such up-to-date developments as extended interaction output circuits, periodic permanent magnetic focusing and long life electron emitters.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Surveys the current status of the klystron, a microwave amplifier that works on the principle of velocity modulation, focusing on recent developments aimed at high reliability, long operating life, and broad frequency. Also discusses some of the problems encountered in such a high-voltage, high power device, and reviews its 60-year history and the development of the underlying ballistic and space-charge theory. For users and manufacturers of klystrons. Double spaced. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
