    Do─čan, Mehmet Sinan (Dogus Author) -- Conference full title: 5th International Particle Accelerator Conference, IPAC 2014; International Congress Center DresdenDresden; Germany; 15 June 2014 through 20 June 2014Turkish Accelerator and Radiation Laboratory in Ankara (TARLA) is an oscillator mode IR-FEL facility which is under construction since 2011. ELBE licensed superconducting modules housing TESLA RF cavities have been manufacturing for one year and the first module will be delivered in 2015. He Cryogenic System has also started to be manufacturing at similar time with the accelerator structures. It will be delivered in 2014. High Power RF amplifiers are started to tender procedures and delivery time is planning as 2015. The installation of high power transmission lines have to be completed at the same time with the delivery date of HPRF amplifiers to test the cavities and amplifiers. In this study, the final structural design of high power RF transmission lines and design parameters of RF amplifiers for TARLA is discussed

    Industrial GaInP/GaAs Power HBT MMIC Process

    UMS has developed an industrial power HBT process especially dedicated to power MMICs in the 10GHz frequency range. The process has been qualified and meets the very demanding specifications required for X-Band high power amplifiers. Aside from the obvious RF performances, this includes the demonstration of the necessary stability and reproducibility of the process, associated with state-of-art reliability. It is important to note that the later has been achieved without affecting the high frequency capability of the devices, and demonstrated directly on high power transistors. Thanks to its intrinsic qualities this process can naturally also be used for other applications, like low phase noise voltage controlled oscillators, and power amplifiers at lower frequencies (for mobile phones for instance)

    Power density measurements in the near field of the DSS 13 26-meter antenna

    Power density measurements were made at Deep Space Station (DSS) 13 in the near field of the 26-m antenna to determine if radio frequency (rf) fields generated by the 20-kW transmitters could be responsible for the failure of three solid state rf amplifiers. These amplifiers are used in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Radio Spectrum Surveillance System, which is currently located at the site. Measurements were made independently for one transmitter at 7150 MHz, and both transmitters together. Measurement results are tabulated and compared with predicted power densities under the measurement conditions. The results agree with the predictions within a factor of two. The predictions appear to give worst case values. Measurements indicated that amplifier failures are not attributable to the transmitter

    RF Amplifier: Design Aspects and Development Procedure

    Get PDF
    High power RF is an essential part of the future fusion reactors and the high power RF technology is still under development. There are only two companies in the world who manufacture MW level RF generators in the frequency range of 10 to 100 MHz The project for the design of RF Amplifiers consists of Understanding of HF amplifiers, understanding distributed design aspects of RF amplifier and then actual RF design of the amplifier in the form of circuit design and also the design of input and output cavity and coupling to make a complete system using CST software as well as analytical formulae.

    This paper reviews the main types of r.f. power amplifiers which are, or may be, used for particle accelerators. It covers solid-state devices, tetrodes, inductive output tubes, klystrons, magnetrons, and gyrotrons with power outputs greater than 10 kW c.w. or 100 kW pulsed at frequencies from 50 MHz to 30 GHz. Factors affecting the satisfactory operation of amplifiers include cooling, matching and protection circuits are discussed. The paper concludes with a summary of the state of the art for the different technologies.Comment: 35 pages, contribution to the CAS - CERN Accelerator School: Specialised Course on RF for Accelerators; 8 - 17 Jun 2010, Ebeltoft, Denmar

    Rf for cyclotrons

    Get PDF
    The following paper will give an overview of cyclotron-specific RF design: it will deal with classical RF structures (Dees), which are mostly based on a ╬╗/4 or ╬╗/2 coaxial line design, and extend to cavity concepts deviating from conventional cyclotron resonators. Such cavities usually can only be employed in Separated Sector Cyclotrons (SSCs), because their designs ask for more space for the RF cavities. Modelling methods, mechanical design and some results are also presented. Specific characteristics and requirements for RF power amplifiers are introduced; illustrated by two types of power amplifiers. Finally, basic concepts and prerequisites for control systems are presented
