  A high-gradient accelerator consisted of the test and the drive beam structures is reported. The accelerating structure can be based on dielectric or corrugated cavities separated each other by irises. Each cavity is operated by several axisymmetric, TM-like eigen-modes with longitudinal indices to be related to frequencies. These modes are excited at Fourier harmonics of the drive current which consists of bunches spaced with the same period as test bunches. The superposition of the excited modes introduces a short RF pulse propagated in-phase with a moving test bunch and after reflection by iris (a feedback) this pulse can accelerate next bunch. Such longitudinally-sweeping RF field promises a reduction of the exposure time and due to compact space shape can help to obtain high shunt impedance.

A room-temperature RF undulator to produce ~1 nm wavelength radiation using a relatively low energy electron beam (0.5 GeV) is considered. The design features include an effective undulator period of 0.45 cm, an undulator parameter of K = 0.4, an effective field length of 50 cm. These parameters could be be realized using a multi-MW RF power amplifier to drive the undulator (e.g., the 34 GHz pulsed magnicon at Yale or a 30 GHz gyroklystron at IAP) with microsecond pulse duration. Two undulator designs were considered that avoid problems with a co-propagating wave: a dual-mode cylindrical cavity [TE01 (counter propagating) - TE02 (co-propagating)] with an off-axis electron beam; and a traveling HE11 mode resonant ring with an on-axis beam.
