Modulator number 300 from ScandiNova

UPPSALA, SWEDEN, OCTOBER 4, 2015. TODAY, SCANDINOVA’S 300TH PULSED POWER UNIT IS READY FOR DELIVERY FROM THE PRODUCTION FACILITY IN UPPSALA, SWEDEN. THIS HIGH POWER RF UNIT IS OPTIMIZED FOR THE EUROPEAN PROJECT CALLED “EXTREME LIGHT INFRASTRUCTURE NUCLEAR PHYSICS” (ELI-NP) IN MAGULERE, ROMANIA. THE FINAL FULL POWER TESTS OF THE UNIT IN SCANDINOVA’S LABORATORY CONFIRMED AGAIN THE WORLD LEADING PULSE-TO-PULSE STABILITY WHILE OPERATING AT 100 PULSES PER SECOND.

The delivery to ELI-NP is part of a total order of 13 RF (Radio Frequency) systems with peak powers in the range of 45-60 MW.  By using refined measurement methods ScandiNova has been able to confirm a pulse-to-pulse stability of 13 ppm, which is something never seen before in the modulator industry at these power levels. This has been made possible through the continuous development and improvement of Scandinova’s patented solid-state technology.

ScandiNova continues its positive development with significant growth in all business areas. In addition to the 300 units already delivered, the company has a backlog of an additional 90 systems in the order books. Science research is one of the main application segments and the reference list includes leading research institutes such as CERN, DESY, INFN, CNRS, PSI, MAXIV, AsTech, Lawrence Livermore, MIT, Jiao Tong, and PAL.

– This is a milestone in our company’s development from a small business to a global leader in the pulsed power industry, says Mikael Lindholm, Senior VP Sales & Marketing, ScandiNova Systems AB. We look forward to continuing this journey together with our customers and partners says Mikael.

ELI-NP is a new advanced Laser dedicated for Scientific Research, with the highest power (2x 10PW) in the world.  It is planned to be installed in Magulere, Rumania, and fully operational in 2018. The Laser system is based on a 700MeV electron accelerator system (both S- and C-band). This accelerator system is fed by 13 high power pulsed RF stations using the unique Solid State Modulator technology provided by ScandiNova.
