RF Amplifiers for NMR, MRI, EPR

Tomco produces a wide range of amplifiers tailored to suit the requirements of NMR, MRI, EPR, ESR,ENDOR and NQR. Available across a wide range of frequencies and power levels, these amplifiers cover most commonly used NMR frequenices.

Key features are:

  • very low interpulse noise
  • high linearity
  • very fast pulse rise/fall times
  • fast post-pulse recovery
  • compact, modular systems requiring minimal ongoing maintenace
  • rugged, high reliability, 3 year warranty
  • handle up to +10dBm overdrive for no damage, robust VSWR protection
  • low power CW operation automatically available in standard 20% duty cycle models
  • ultra fast systems available for EPR

Amplifier Modules

Our amplifier modules are popular choices for OEMs and do-it-yourself spectrometer builders. They are "brick" modules meaning power amplifier stage only with no power supply or mismatch protection. They do include over temperature protection and can be supplied with suitable heatsink and fan assembly.

They offer a versatile, cost-effective solution for the RF amplifier stage of benchtop magnetic resonance systems.
