Welcome to Vacuum Electronics

The IEEE Electron Device Society Vacuum Electronics Technical Committee welcome you to the vacuum electronics.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.

Learn More About IVEC

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.


Vacuum Electronics Young Scientist Award

To recognize outstanding contributions from early career researchers and young professionals in the field of Vacuum Electronics.
