RF electronics deals with the generation, acquisition and manipulation of high-frequency signals. In particle accelerators signals of this kind are abundant, especially in the RF and beam diagnostics systems. In modern machines the complexity of the electronics assemblies dedicated to RF manipulation, beam diagnostics, and feedbacks is continuously increasing, following the demands for improvement of accelerator performance. However, these systems, and in particular their front-ends and back… 

Cavity Field Control for High-Intensity Linear Proton Accelerators

The European Spallation Source will, once fully operational in 2025, be the world's brightest neutron source. The neutrons will be generated by bombarding a tungsten target with protons accelerated

Cavity Field Control for Linear Particle Accelerators

This thesis demonstrates that a key to understand the dynamics of the field control loop is to represent it as a single-input single-output system with complex coefficients, and develops practical and theoretical tools for analysis and control design for complex-coefficient systems.

Gas discharge tube-based variable RF attenuator

In this paper, tunable RF attenuation using low temperature plasma technology is investigated theoretically and experimentally. Specifically, gas discharge tubes (GDTs) are employed as plasma cells

Timing and Synchronization

This document describes the resulting problems, gives a basic description of concepts for the solution, shows several solution presently in use, and finishes with a linear model to compute the resulting phase-noise of a synchronization system.



Low-level RF systems for synchrotrons. Part II: High intensity. Compensation of beam-induced effects

The high intensity regime is reached when the voltage induced by the beam in the RF cavities is of an amplitude comparable to the desired accelerating voltage. In steady state this beam loadingcan be

Principles of communication systems

This edition features improved treatment of signal analysis, including representations in signal space, as well as a more complete and modern presentation of random variables and random processes.

Foundations for microwave engineering

This paper presents a meta-modelling architecture for waveguiding systems that automates the very labor-intensive and therefore time-heavy and expensive process of designing and installingWaveguiding Systems.

Phaselock techniques

  • F. Gardner
  • Education
    IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics
  • 1984
This book represents the second edition of Gardner's widely known book on phaselock principles and applications, and Gardner has clearly written for the practitioner, providing the necessary information with a minimum of rigor and a succinct writing style.
