Differences between Magnetron and Reflex Klystron

S.No. Magnetron Reflex Klystron
1 Magnetron are cross-field tubes as they have the electric field and magnetic field perpendicular to each other. Reflex Klystron is a linear microwave beam tube.
2 They are referred as M-type tubes. They are referred as O tubes or original tubes.
3 The energy containing electrons interact with RF field for a long duration. The energy carrying electrons interacts the RF field for a short duration.
4 The efficiency of magnetron is in the range of 40 to 70%. The efficiency provided by reflex klystron is in the range of 10 to 20%.
5 The frequency range for magnetron is 500 MHz to 12 GHz. The frequency range of reflex klystron is 4 to 200 GHz.
