At RadiaBeam, we work not only to make quality products for existing accelerator systems, but to further the field of accelerator science. We obtain grants to develop our own ideas and welcome the opportunity to work with clients who want help developing innovations of their own. We showcase some of our projects on our Research page. Please Contact Us about your projects.
Pictured at left is a close up of the Real Time Interferometer (RTI), a Department of Energy funded R&D project. RadiaBeam designed and engineered this THz instrument for single-shot measurements of bunch lengths of ultra-short bunches. The RTI allows for instantaneous measurement of bunch length, a process that normally takes several minutes.
Designing accelerators and related components and instrumentation requires expertise in a wide range of disciplines, from beam dynamics to vacuum engineering. RadiaBeam’s expert staff is experienced with a wide range of accelerator simulation tools and codes that we apply to our designs.
Pictured at left is the Finite Element Analysis of the resonant fields in a photoinjector. After RF simulations, thermal analysis is used to confirm stability of the structure under operations. Full 3D CAD is produced based on tolerances taken from both the RF and Thermal simulations.
RadiaBeam employs the latest CAD and simulation software. We can completely design your product or simply help you refine your own design. Once the design process is done, we can give you documentation in a number of industry standard formats.
RadiaBeam prides itself in its fabrication capabilities. Our expert machinists have decades of experience, and our large high-bay workshop (~4,000 ft2) is equipped with state-of-the-art machining equipment, including several CNC mills and lathes and a full suite of shop tools.
We wind our coils in-house using the most precise equipment available and technicians with decades of experience. We make sure that what we deliver is exactly what the design promised.
RadiaBeam has recently constructed a Class 100 cleanroom in order to ensure that we can meet the stringent standards that UHV qualification demands. You can trust our products to be ready to use right out of the package.
RadiaBeam is fully equipped to design, engineer, fabricate and test optical systems for a wide variety of applications. Our facility is equipped with a 1,000 ft2 optics laboratory with several lasers and a FIR/THz test bench. In addition, we have an in-house class 100 cleanroom. Our optics capabilities support our line of custom profile monitors, many of which require advanced imaging systems, and our expansive R&D projects in laser and photonics science.
Our in-house RF testing lab is equipped with a network analyzer, automated bead pull system, complimentary instrumentation, and environmental controls. Located adjacent to our clean machine shop, the RF testing lab is an integral component of the production of all our RF products, allowing timely design and fabrication validation.
Pictured at left is the initial testing of the MicroLinac, a low cost, compact X-band linac capable of producing radiation comparable to most common radionuclide sources.
As beam physicists ourselves, we realize that well-characterized, reliable magnets are essential to any sort of accelerator-based work. RadiaBeam has a precision magnetic testing and metrology system, including a 3-axis Hall probe and rotating coil, in order to ensure that the magnets we send to you will meet your specifications out of the box and will continue to do so over the course of your work.
If you need us there when you open the crate, we can be there. We offer full installation service and will come back anytime you need us for service and maintenance. That won't be often.
