cavity tuning

cavity tuning

[′kav·əd·ē ‚tün·iŋ]
(electromagnetism)
Use of an adjustable cavity resonator as a tuned circuit in an oscillator or amplifier, with tuning usually achieved by moving a metal plunger in or out of the cavity to change the volume, and hence the resonant frequency of the cavity.

Although the importance of the impedance matching and cavity tuning has been already found and discussed in medicine for microwave exposure to biological tissue [12] (at, obviously, a low temperature), those aspects are rarely evoked in hightemperature microwave processes.
The field of piezo motion devices for laser applications has expanded rapidly in recent years and today's optical engineers have a wealth of different piezo technologies at their disposal, from small piezo stacks for cavity tuning to tip/tilt platforms and long travel motors with high dynamics and precision.
The system includes options such as PZT cavity tuning, variable output power, external modulation input and an internal pointer.
