This year’s National Vacuum Electronics Conference (NVEC) took place on the 5th June 2014 at Daresbury Laboratory (STFC) in the Cockcroft Institute. The aim of the conference is to focus on early career researchers and staff members (PhD student / PDRA level) and provides an excellent opportunity for researchers and engineers from both academia and industry to present and discuss on-going development and advances in Vacuum Electronics, RF Science and Engineering research.
Twelve talks were given over the day, covering a wide range of topics from vacuum tube design, equivalent circuit models for cavity tuning, metamaterial research, Terahertz radiation, to gun and cavity design and generated lively discussion. In addition CST provided a talk during the lunch break on the latest upgrades to Microwave Studio.
Next year’s NVEC is to be hosted at Strathclyde University.
