Vacuum Electronics Consulting

SiberSci, LLC provides Vacuum Electronics Consulting resources for an assortment of Vacuum Electronic Device (VED) assembly components, circuits, assemblies, and systems.  SiberSci, LLC provides services for the theoretical analysis, design, development, fabrication, testing, validation, and optimization of:

  1. oxide cathodes,
  2. dispenser cathodes,
  3. slow-wave circuits,
  4. dispersion analysis,
  5. fast-wave circuits,
  6. electron collectors and depressed collectors,
  7. mode converters,
  8. getters,
  9. vacuum windows,
  10. vacuum enclosures,
  11. vacuum equipment,
  12. linear accelerator cavities,
  13. ion sources,
  14. materials processing and cleaning,
  15. brazing fixtures,
  16. assembly procedures, and
  17. failure diagnostics.  

Our experience allows us to review both your requirements for the defined vacuum electronics hardware, from which SiberSci can make recommendations for one or more hardware configurations to satisfy these requirements.  SiberSci can also review proprietary performance specifications, size constraints, and proposed hardware configurations to determine if these concepts are suitable for the intended application, or determine if the design concepts must be modified to satisfy the stated requirements.  Performance and physical limitations for design concepts will be documented during the review process, and modifications to the design concept will be documented to illustrate how the design concepts must be adapted to satisfy the performance and size limitations.  If some portion of the performance or size specification is found to be physically impossible to achieve, then these problem areas will be revealed along with recommendations to circumvent these barriers to achieving the requisite performance.

SiberSci, LLC is experienced using Ansys HFSS, CST Microwave Studio, ATK Magic, and Tech-X VSim to support the Computational ElectroMagnetics (CEM) and Particle-in-Cell (PIC) aspects of these programs.  Clients can specify use of one or more of these tools for their project as long as the client provides a valid license for using the code(s), or pays for contract access to the code of choice.  If the client is unable to select the appropriate code(s) for their project, then SiberSci is prepared to assist each client with selecting the appropriate codes(s) to ensure the success of their project.  It is important for each client to realize that the accuracy of simulations are dependent upon the frequency and temperature dependent material properties (conductivity, permittivity, permeability,…) of the metals and dielectrics used for fabricating their circuits, so these material properties must be measured so they can be included in the simulations.  Laboratory and contract resources are available to determine these material properties, which are essential for providing accurate simulations of vacuum electronics circuits.  SiberSci can provide each client with the capability to only use valid material properties for their CEM simulations.

In conclusion, please submit your inquiry for a Vacuum Electronics Consulting project to Dr. Scott Best, and clearly specify if a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) is required to protect your business sensitive, Intellectual Property (IP), or Proprietary Data (PD).   SiberSci will provide a NDA for review, negotiation, and amendment by the client to safeguard and protect their IP and PD.  SiberSci will also provide a budgetary quotation and schedule for performing the client defined Vacuum Electronics Consulting effort after reviewing the performance requirements.  Work on the Vacuum Electronics Consulting project will commence when a contract has been negotiated and legally executed by SiberSci and the client.
