The RF cavity is driven by a 15W microwave driver with an active phase and amplitude feedback system. The driver stabilizes the phase and amplitude of the fields in the cavity which results in optimal performance. The driver measures the actual fields in the cavity and compares these both in phase and amplitude with the signal that is offered to the driver. Both the phase and amplitude are then stabalized using loop electronics. The phase and amplitude errors can be monitored on a scope. The driver also allows to control the phase and amplitude directly on the device or via a remote connection (usb/ethernet).
