A Marx-topology klystron modulator is under development for the International Linear Collider (ILC) project  . It is envisioned as a lower cost, smaller footprint, and higher reliability alternative to the present, bouncer-topology, baseline design. The application requires 120 kV (+/-0.5%), 140 A, 1.6 ms pulses at a rate of 5 Hz. The Marx constructs the high voltage pulse by combining, in series, a number of lower voltage cells. The Marx employs solid state elements; IGBTs and diodes, todoi:10.1109/ppc.2009.5386365 fatcat:utttxopcgrh6vgb4ejncbx4any
