  abstract     = {Abstract: A future European light source CompactLight is being proposed to extend FEL operation further into the x-ray region than other light sources by using a linac operating at X-band (12 GHz) with a short Ka-band (36 GHz) section for linearizing bunch phase space. The Ka-band system requires a high-power RF amplifier, synchronized with the main X-band source. We report here on design of a third-harmonic klystron amplifier for this application. Our design employs a four-cavity system with a multi-cell extended interaction output cavity. Initial simulation results indicate that more than 10 MW of 36-GHz power can be obtained with an efficiency exceeding 20%, and with 12-GHz drive power of 30 W. A preliminary design for a proof-of-principal experimental test of this concept is described},
