Particle Accelerators, Thermonuclear Fusion, Irradiation Systems or Medical Solution...Tubes for each application

Drawing on decades of experience of pionneering RF technology, Thales has built up a complete portfolio of high power Klystrons, Tetrodes, Diacrodes, IOT's and Gyrotrons. 

These solutions operate at the cutting-edge of technology, harnessing our expertise in the fields of high-voltage operation, cooling, RF and electromagnetic radiation to guarantee optimum power, control and reliability for whichever application they support.

Thales RF sources are employed by leading OEM's and research organisations for demanding configurations:

Thales Group - Tubes for science

Particle Accelerators

Thales Group - Accelerator
Thales RF sources are integrated into the world's most prestigious particle accelerators. They are a major driving force to the increasing performance of the accelerators which are crucial to the research of the basic constituent components of matter.


Thales Group - Fusion
Thales RF sources are used in experimental reactors to provide the energy needed to reach temperatures of several tens of millions of degrees. Such temperatures are necessary for the fusion reaction of hydrogen isotopes, as scientists establish the possibility of thermonuclear fusion as an energy source of the future. 

Medical Applications

Thales Group - Therapy
 Thales Klystrons and Tetrodes provide RF energy for the particle accelerators used in radiotherapy applications to boost the performance of thousands of cancer therapy systems used worldwide, whilst ensuring their safe and reliable operation.
