Vacuum Electronics: Status and Trends

  title={Vacuum Electronics: Status and Trends},
  author={Baruch Levush and D. K. Abe and J. P. Calame and B. G. Danly and K. T. Nguyen and E. J. Dutkowski and R. Abrams and R. Parker},
  journal={IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Magazine},
The vast preponderance of US radar transmitters today use vacuum electronic amplifiers, spanning the spectrum from UHF to EHF. Enhancements to performance, reliability, and cost of ownership are being applied continuously to these systems: routine in-service life extensions mandate continuing vacuum electronics research and development to support system needs for the foreseeable future. In addition, exciting advances in vacuum electronics will provide dramatic improvements in millimeter-wave… CONTINUE READING
