Vacuum electronic devices, such as rf sources for accelerator applications, must provide high rf power with high efficiency. To achieve these requirements, multi-beam klystron and sheet-beam klystron devices have been developed. Multi-beam klystrons, at high frequency employ separate output cavities; hence they have the disadvantage that combining all the rf pulses, generated by all the beams, is challenging. Sheet-beam klystrons have problems with instabilities and with space charge forces that makes the beam not naturally confined. We are proposing an alternative approach that reduces space charge problems, by adopting geometries in which the space charge forces are naturally balanced. An example is when the electron beam is generated by a central source (well) and the electron motion corresponds to the natural expansion of the electron cloud (three-dimensional device). In this paper we will present the design and challenges of a bi-dimensional rf source, a cylindrical klystron, composed by concentric pancake resonant cavities. In this case, space charge forces are naturally balanced in the azimuthal direction.
