Ceramics from Daleba aid CERN's experiments

Daleba aid CERN's experiments

CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, known is an intergovernmental organization that operates the largest particle physics laboratory in the world.

CERN's primary function is to provide the particle accelerators and other essential infrastructure needed for high-energy physics research. As a result, numerous experiments have been developed at CERN through collaborative efforts on an international scale.

CERN’s Beam Instrumentation group turned to Daleba for the supply of ceramic circuits. The group design and build the instruments that monitor the particle beams in the CERN complex. In most cases these beams can only exist in an ultra-high vacuum (typically 10E-8 mbar) and so any instrumentation inside the “beam pipe” must not pollute this vacuum with “out-gassing”. For this reason only ceramic PCBs are acceptable.

The CERN BI group use PCBs from Daleba for several “in-beam” instruments, and for the example shown they chose Al2O3.
