Linear Accelerator Products

L3 Electron Devices offers a comprehensive line of devices for the linac industry, including high-performance klystrons, electron emitters (e-guns), thyratrons and magnetrons. Many of these products are available for quick delivery.

  • Klystrons
    • We offer cathode pulsed X-band klystrons for use in high energy linac accelerator systems. Please see our High-Power Klystron page for a complete listing of our klystrons.
  • Magnetrons
    • We have linac magnetrons in frequencies up to X-Band. Please see our L6170 data sheet for our X-Band magnetron and our Magnetron Products page for a general listing of our magnetrons.

    Electron Emitters (E-GUNS)
    • We provide a wide variety of electron guns for use in industrial and research applications. Please see our M592 data sheet as an example.
