X-band high power water loads

We develop two concepts of vacuum RF loads based on a cavity surrounded by absorbing water vessel with dielectric walls to be transparent for microwaves. We propose to use either corrugated walls of the metallic cavity or corrugated dielectric walls of the water vessel itself. These corrugations allow essentially reducing peak surface RF fields. Water cooling also provides good opportunities to operate the loads at high average RF power. The proposed loads have being simulated to satisfy the parameters: 50 MW peak and 25 kW average.
