Welcome to Vacuum Electronics

The IEEE Electron Device Society Vacuum Electronics Technical Committee welcome you to the vacuumelectronics.org website.

Chair’s Corner

From the emergence of the first vacuum electron devices more than a century ago, the technology has stood alone for its unparalleled ability to provide high power in the microwave, millimetre wave, and even THz frequency regimes. Vacuum electronics remains a dynamic and exciting multidisciplinary field and continues to attract many talented and ambitious young people, which promises a bright future for the technology as it evolves.
