  abstract     = {{A Ferro-Electric Fast Reactive Tuner (FE-FRT) is a new type of tuner, utilising a novel ferro-electric material, which can change the frequency of an RF cavity on the sub-microsecond timescale and has the potential to reduce a cavity’s RF power requirements by an order of magnitude in some cases.   During operation, power is continuously coupled out of the cavity, through the tuner, and reflected back into the cavity.  By applying a high voltage across a ferro-electric within the tuner, the reactive load seen by the cavity is altered which causes a frequency shift in the cavity.   The extremely fast response times of FE-FRTs make them especially suited to the correction of frequency variations caused by microphonics. New closed loop tuning measurements at CERN with a prototype FE-FRT and superconducting RF cavity have recently demonstrated excellent suppression of the cavity’s microphonics.  The experimental set-up and the recent test results will be presented and the capabilities of this approach contrasted with more common systems, such as piezoelectric based tuners.}},
