Current Vacuum Tube History
First Terahertz Vacuum Tube Amplifier Created
Vacuum tubes bring back visions of antique electronics, but these are not your grandparents’ TV sets or radios. DARPA-sponsored research has taken tools developed by the semiconductor and MEMS revolution & microfabrication methods and materials;and applied them to reliable, efficient vacuum tube technologies, making the first micromachined Traveling Wave Tube Amplifier.
