Teichert Keywords: Solid state RF power amplifiers; Superconducting CW RF; 1.3GHz solid state RF-power amplifiers; ELBE-RF; Superconducting LINAC RF Abstract: The RF power for the superconducting 1.3GHz CW LINAC "ELBE" has been doubled from less than 10kW to 20kW per cavity. In January 2012 the four 10kW klystrons used to drive the four superconducting cavities of the LINAC have been replaced by pairs of 10kW solid state power amplifiers (SSPA). ELBE is now worldwide the first 1.3GHz CW LINAC equipped with solid state RF power amplifiers. This technical note details on this project.
