making innovation happen, together

Electronic devices include a  wide variety of products, spanning from hermetically sealed, vacuum-based to semi-hermetic, gas filled configurations.

Vacuum tubes are the basis for a variety of devices to transmit, detect and amplify signals of different kinds such as radio, optical or electrical.

 

Since its inception,  the SAES Group has contributed to this industry by developing:

• The most advanced getter solutions to ensure high reliability and long lifetimes,
• Dispenser cathodes of different sizes to provide a consistent electron beam,
• Alkaline metal dispensers ROHs compliant to create a photosensitive surface when required. 

 

In the microwave and power tube industry, the SAES Group is a key partner to guarantee consistent and constant performances in scientific, defense, avionics and telecommunication applications.

 

The SAES Group provides advanced porous getters as well as dispenser cathodes for all types of X-ray tubes used for medical, testing, security and scientific applications.

In order to phase out harmful environmental gases such as SF6, vacuum interrupters and switches are gaining more and more market acceptance in the power grid distribution industry:  getters from the SAES Group are among the key components for these vacuum based devices.

The SAES Group produces alkali metal sources ROHs compliant capable of releasing high purity alkali metal vapors in an extremely controllable way, thus enabling the industry to produce highly sensitive alkali photocathodes, which are key components of night vision tubes, X-ray image intensifiers and photomultipliers. Small cathodes and getters from the SAES Group are also contributing to enhance the performances of ion gas lasers.

 

The technology evolution has transitioned devices from a vacuum environment to packaging in a hermetically sealed protected atmosphere. The SAES Group has contributed to this evolution by providing innovative and small footprint hydrogen getters for microwave GaAs devices, and novel dispensable getter compounds for optical fiber signal amplifiers, modulators, emitters and implantable medical devices among others.

The SAES Group is therefore a stable factor in this industry, supporting traditional vacuum based devices and working hard to provide  technical solutions for  the next generation of solid state devices.
