Abstract

Based on previous experimental investigations on pseudospark (PS) discharges, a small-scaled PS electron beam source was conceived to drive a 200GHz microklystron. Recent PS e-beam experiments producing a beam of 1mm in diameter and klystron interaction simulations will be presented. The microklystron will be fabricated using micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) construction techniques.
