RF Power Sources for High-Brightness RF Linacs
This paper will discuss the types of devices and system architectures that show promise in providing rf power sources for future rf linear accelerators. Different types of sources will probably be required at different frequencies, but in all cases, efficiency and unit cost will be prime considerations. In many applications, high power-to-weight ratios will also be advantageous.
