Title: Bi-resonant klynac

Abstract

Here in this work, we present the first analysis of a new device called the bi-resonant klynac, which is a combined klystron and linac. In a bi-resonant klynac, all RF cells, except for the cell that acts as the input for the klystron section, belong to a single resonant circuit. This resonant coupling configuration leads to increased operational stability and can tolerate significant temperature variations. In this paper, a basic analysis of this device is presented, including discussions of how it operates and of the advantages of resonantly coupling the RF generation directly to the linac. We additionally describe the approach used to numerically model the klynac and we include detailed simulations of a 50-kV, 10-A klynac that produces a 1-MeV, 0.1-A output beam. In conclusion, this type of device may be especially useful for situations where an electron beam is needed at low cost.
