Abstract : A method is described for assembling a device, having the same geometric configuration as the transmission line to which it is attached, that transmits radio-frequency power through a vacuum barrier. The assembly is adaptable to different types of transmission line geometry and is elastic to reduce leakage caused by vibration or shock. A filler material is placed within a cylindrical tube having a mounting flange attached to one end, a waveguide is passed through the filler and the flange, and an uncured epoxy cement is applied to adjacent areas of the tubing, flange, filler, and waveguide to effect a seal. The assembly is then subjected to a high vacuum while the epoxy is cured. (Author)
