Accelerators & magnets

Extreme accuracy, reliability and flexibility

202107 094 814


Particle detectors come in many different designs and are used for a wide variety of applications. CERN in Geneva, for example, has large detectors and they are used to detect the tiniest particles generated in the world’s most powerful accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

For many physicists, it would be a dream come true to work on the particle accelerator at the CERN facility, which the general public has known about at least since the filming of the movie “Angels & Demons” by Dan Brown: The Large Hadron Collider at CERN has a circumference of 27 km and uses 9,700…

Mass spectrometers

Mass spectrometers can be used to determine the age of man-made objects or fossils, for example. The carbon content of a tiny piece of the object being investigated is determined using the C14 method, as it is known. This method was introduced by Willard Frank Libby (Nobel Prize winner for Chemistry).

The ETH in Zürich has recently carried out a spectacular age
determination test. A team of researchers used the mass spectrometer developed there to determine the age of “Ötzi”, a discovery of tremendous scientific interest in the Alps.

Supply of dipole and bending magnets

Accuracy and reliability

The control and deflection of particle beams by accelerators and magnets is of particular importance in research institutions or for medical applications. In order for dipoles and bending magnets to work reliably, they need a corresponding magnet power supply.

Accuracy and reliability of the magnet power supply is critical

It does not matter whether dipoles and bending magnets are used to deflect the particles for research purposes or for irradiating cancer tumors. The requirements for accuracy and reliability are always a challenge and…

Supply of quadrupole magnets

Customers use quadrupole magnets to focus nuclear particle beams. The magnets affect the beam in the transporting vacuum tube and are usually supplies with currents ranging from 100 to 350 amperes. Quadrupole magnets need reliable bipolar or unipolar current supply – Heinzinger provides the appropriate solution for applications in scientific laboratories or medical X-ray therapies.
