Since its inception in 2000, the International Vacuum Electronics Conference has become the premier international venue for presentations in the field of vacuum electronics. It was born by merging the US Power Tubes Conferences and the European Space Agency TWTA Workshops
IVEC meets in the U.S. every two years in Monterey, which has become the US home of IVEC and in Europe and Asia alternately every fourth year.
The International Vacuum Electronics Conference provides a forum for presentation and discussion of topics on vacuum devices, vacuum microelectronics, applications of vacuum devices, and the theory and technological developments of vacuum electron devices. The Conference takes place for three days. The morning of the first day is devoted to a Plenary Session. The other two days and a half are filled by technical sessions and posters sessions.
Technical presentations spans the range from UHF to THz frequencies and presents current work in theory and computational tool development, active and passive components, systems, and supporting technologies.
Developers of systems will find that IVEC provides a unique snapshot into the current state-of-the-art in vacuum electronic devices. These devices continue to provide unmatched power and performance for advanced electromagnetic systems, particularly in the challenging frequency regimes of millimeter-wave and THz electronics. The meeting is configured to maximally disseminate useful information to device users, manufacturers, academics, and students.
Plenary talks provide insights into the broad spectrum of scientific issues and applications that are driving the current directions in vacuum electronics research. In particular, a number of topical scientific and commercial applications will be highlighted, including digital broadcasting, high data-rate communications, medical applications, and RF accelerator technology for high energy physics.
A highlight of the meeting is the presentation of the Electronics.
The IVEC Proceedings contain all the papers presented in IVEC, providing for the people in the field, an unvaluable source on the state of the art in Vacuum Electronics. The links to the IVEC Proceedings are available in
