Description: An rf-driven lasertron has been built and is being tested. It is designed to produce over 1 MW of power at 1.3 GHz, with over 60% conversion efficiency between the beam's kinetic energy and microwaves. The design and experiment are discussed, and calculations are presented that show lasertrons can operate at frequencies up to 20 GHz. 3 refs., 5 figs.
