Commercial electronic stabilization equipment was just being developed at the time and was too difficult to use for broad searches requiring several different klystrons.
Finally, it would be advisable to revise the TWT, klystron and gyrotron approaches in order to implement a green equipment that, if not from the economical point of view, be an environmentally viable technology.
He then focuses on microwave vacuum electronics, explaining the physics and theory of the interaction of electron beams with electromagnetic fields in quasi-stationary systems such as diodes and klystrons, systems with continuous interactions such as traveling wave tubes, backward magnetrons and crossed-field amplifiers, and systems based on stimulated radiation of classical electron oscillations.
e2v technologies has been selected to supply narrowband CW klystrons for use in Cornell University's prototype energy-recovery linear accelerator (ERL), a new and advanced synchrotron radiation machine.
The oscillator-type magnetron could then be substituted by high-power klystrons and traveling-wave tubes (TWTs).
Klystrons, invented at Stanford in 1937, are devices that generate microwaves for accelerating electrons.
There are several devices for generating microwaves: magnetrons, klystrons, traveling wave tubes (TWT), backward wave oscillators, cross-field amplifiers, and masers.
Certain klystrons and gyrotrons can generate megawatts, and it would take tens of thousands of transistors to do that.
VSim uses FDTD and particle in cell solvers to simulate particles and electromagnetics together and optimally covers applications including high power RF amplifiers and oscillators like klystrons, helix TWT amplifiers and magnetrons.
