We present the design, simulation and analysis of 400 kW sheet beam gun. The beam optics, beam envelop and the magnetic field of the gun is designed and then simulated in CST PS. 100% beam transmission is achieved at the target similar to the size of the electron source. A space charge beam current of 5 A is obtained at 80 kV of acceleration voltage. Deformation calculated by the thermal analysis at 3000 °C temperature of the cathode has no significant effect on the electrodes. Besides metallurgical applications, the beam perveance 0.22 μP at 80 kV is useable for RF power amplification in klystron technology for linear accelerators.
