Klystron is a Microwave Generator
Compare SLAC's large, high-power microwavegenerator (klystron- below) with this much smallerone (magnetron - right) from a typical microwaveoven.A klystron looks and works something like an organ pipe.
In an organ pipe:
Blowing into the organ pipe produces a flow of air.Flowing air excites vibrations in the cavity of thewhistle.The vibrations flow into the surrounding air as soundwaves.
