Injection Locked Magnetron with Phase and Amplitude Control
Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, IL, United States
Fermilab recently demonstrated regulation of amplitude and phase in narrow band Radio Frequency (RF) devices, eg superconducting RF cavities, driven by constant power output devices, eg magnetrons. Technology enables use of low cost, high efficiency magnetrons for RF power sources, where tight vector control is required.
