Project description

To meet new demands from accelerator physics strategies on the rise the Micro Accelerator Structure center (MAS) in Uppsala was founded. It will aid Big Science facilities around the world in constructing microfabricated devices utilizing e.g. lithography methods in clean room environments. The first collaboration for delivering such hardware are with DESY in Germany which currently are constructing a test accelerator setup, Sinbad where the centre will play a vital part in producing micro machined structures, sample holders, controllers and setups.
