Powerful accelerators rank among their most important research tools. Depending on the discipline, they use a wide variety of superconducting structures for particle acceleration and collision.
The metal niobium is distinguished by high thermal conductivity and superconductive properties, as well as easy workability. It is therefore particularly well-suited for the construction and development of a wide variety of structures or cavities, such as elliptical cavities, single spoke resonators (SSR), and half-wave resonators (HWR).
Heraeus offers you grades specially developed for superconductive cavities. You receive the niobium as an ingot or semi-finished product (sheets, plates, tubes, rings, flanges, disks sliced directly from the ingot, HOM coupler housing, HOM coupler port, rods).
Our many years of experience and in-depth expertise in processing the material allow you to develop individual solutions. We provide custom-tailored solutions and work with you to master your challenges.
