The Vacuum Microwave Device Department (VMDD) builds the devices that make SLAC's particle accelerators go. These devices—called klystrons—generate intense waves of microwave energy that rocket subatomic particles up to nearly the speed of light. Department head Andy Haase takes us behind the scenes where klystrons are born.
These devices are developed, designed and fabricated by teams of physicists, engineers and technicians in coordination across several departments within SLAC's Accelerator Directorate. Check out the AD website here: http://www-public.slac.stanford.edu/a...
