Case Studies

Diamond Light Source

Deep within the Diamond Light Source synchrotron ring, Ampegon RF amplifiers provide the power source for this £260m advanced scientific research facility.

The facility represents the largest UK scientific investment in 40 years, and will ultimately host up to 40 beamlines.

Australian National University

Investigation of the principles of plasma physics, and ideas for improved magnetic design of fusion reactors.

The Australian Plasma Fusion Research Facility, located in the Research School of Physics and Engineering at the Australian National University in Canberra, is a uniquely versatile plasma research institute.

Wendelstein W7-X

Inside the Wendelstein W7-X nuclear fusion research centre in Greifswald, Germany, high voltage power sources from Ampegon are helping pave the way for a brighter, cleaner future.

To create fusion energy, an ionized plasma of deuterium and tritium must be heated to a temperature between 60 million and 130 million degrees Kelvin.
