    An analytical theory of a new device configuration, a clustered-cavity gyroklystron, is developed. The device considered has two clusters of cavities: an input cluster and an output cluster. The results show that, by using a cluster cavity concept, the bandwidth of gyroklystrons can be enlarged...
