A pair of microwave resonators, in which the first resonator has a means for matching the thermal response of the second resonator, such that both resonators can be driven by a common RF power source. The means for matching the thermal response of resonators involves the novel use of at least two metals with different thermal expansion rates, and a probe that is inserted in the first resonator. The likely use of the invention is in a charged particle accelerator that uses a pre-bunching cavity that 15 driven by the same RF power source as the rest of the accelerating structure.
