Large Scale Facilities
precision components for particle accelerator infrastructure and beamlines
Particle accelerators including synchrotrons are the key to gain deeper understanding about the building blocks of matter and their origin. Particle and nuclear physicists use high energy particle collisions to prove subatomic theories, like e.g. the existence of the Higgs boson. Material researchers, biologists, and chemists use the extremely powerful X-ray radiation emitted by the accelerated particles to analyze e.g. protein or semiconductor structures in the beamline end stations. To allow such atomic and subatomic analyses, the position of the bending magnets which guide the particle beam, must be controlled with the highest precision. Furthermore, the emitted X-ray beam needs to be filtered, shaped, and aligned to the sample with nanometer precision.
attocube´s high precision components enable ultra-precise magnet, optics, and sample positioning. The vacuum compatibility and interferometric closed-loop options offer the highest X-ray imaging resolution for cutting-edge synchrotron applications.
