Low energy accelerators are used in industry and research to generate ion beams suitable for various purposes.
This foreseen accelerator overcomes some of the limitations present in state-of-the-art accelerators.
In fact, it allows the construction of an accelerator using a series of lower voltage modules, instead than by resistive division of the voltage generated on one single high voltage terminal.
The all-electronic high voltage generation system allows the use of a liquid dielectric, as an alternative to standard high pressure gases, improving the accelerator safety.
Maintainability and duty cycle improvement occurs too, being the only needed intervention the replacement of a broken module, while the accelerator can operate at lower energy just bypassing it while waiting for repair.
The development plan aims to reach a TRL7 within mid 2022.

  • Poly divinylbenzene for polypeptide synthesis

    Our invention has introduced the use of polydivinylbenzene (PDVB) as the support for the solid phase polypeptide synthesis (SPPS). Its morphology facilitates the formation of longer polypeptide chains and increases the purity and selectivity of the final product. It can[...]

  • High temperature insulating method for electric motor windings

    In the state of the art, complex methods are used to install ceramic insulators in commercial electric motors. In addition, thermally low- performing insulators limit the temperature range in which the motor can operate. A new methodology for insulating electric[...]

  • Enzyme treatment for bioplastic recycling

    This technology aims to improve the hydrolysis of bioplastics though the use of microbial enzymes that efficiently hydrolyze polyesters in bioplastic materials. In contrast to cellulosic sugar cane-based materials, starch-based bioplastics and polylactic acid (PLA) items can remain undegraded after[...]
