China to develop high-power klystrons for big science projects
A platform to develop high-power klystrons for big science projects has started construction in Beijing.
High-power klystrons can produce high-energy microwaves, which is key for big science projects such as high-energy collider, controlled thermonuclear fusion facility, synchrotron radiation device, X-ray free electron laser facility, the China Spallation Neutron Source and the "Meridian Project."
Aiming to meet the country's demands for klystrons and promote the development of big science projects, the platform was designed as the largest base for klystron research and development in China.
The platform is constructed by the Aerospace Information Research Institution of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
