E2V - Inductive Output Tubes

E2V Technologies : 14 February, 2007  (New Product)
UK technology innovator, e2v, has supplied inductive output tubes (IOTs) for the new Diamond Light Source synchrotron based in Oxfordshire, England. The tubes will provide radio frequency (RF) power to one of the synchrotron's RF cavities. Diamond is the largest UK-based scientific facility to be established for three decades.
e2v supplied four IOTD2130 inductive output tubes to the Diamond project in December 2006. The tubes are to be installed into the synchrotron's storage ring RF system, providing a combined RF power of 300kW under continuous wave (CW) conditions, which allows the energy of the electrons within the storage ring to be maintained. This allows consistent beamlines to be provided to users to investigate materials at molecular levels.

Involvement with Diamond, a 3rd generation light source synchrotron, provides e2v with a significant opportunity within the scientific community. e2v already has an established reputation of manufacturing highly reliable IOTs, most of which have tens of thousands of life hours under TV broadcast operation. Supplying IOTs for CW operation for scientific applications builds upon e2v's proven IOT technology and expertise, and will enable the company to extend its reputation within the scientific sector.

The company also has a history of supplying klystrons to the scientific community. In May 2005, for example, e2v was selected to supply CW klystrons for Cornell University's prototype energy-recovery linear accelerator (ERL), an advanced synchrotron radiation machine. Supplying the IOTs for the Diamond Light Source synchrotron allows e2v to further extend its scientific product portfolio.

Commenting on the contract win, Martin Edwards, Product Manager at e2v, said: 'It is very exciting to be a supplier to such a tremendous project in the UK. Seeing Diamond come to life and open its doors for business this month is a milestone in UK scientific research. We are very proud to be a part of this.'
