Mega Industries, LLC. has been awarded a contract by Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab), America’s particle physics and accelerator laboratory. As part of an important program, known as PXIE, Mega will provide UHV (Ultra High Vacuum) power couplers for a RFQ (Radio Frequency Quadrupole) that will accelerate the proton beam within the PXIE linear accelerator at Fermilab while insuring vacuum integrity. This accelerator, when complete, will be unique among high power proton facilities either operating or under development anywhere in the world.
“Our UHV clean room is a major advancement for a manufacturer of waveguides, enabling us to lead the market in this area”, says Peter Matthews, Mega CTO.
