Unlocking the Secrets of the Universe

Scientists use particle accelerators to unlock the secrets of the universe. Traveling at nearly the speed of light, sub-atomic particles speed in a beam that must stay precisely in line with the target. Silicon dioxide (SiO2) cable assemblies play an important role in guiding the beams in their tunnels.


Our SiO2 assemblies are designed to withstand the rigors of an Ultra High Vacuum (UHV) environment. Hermetically sealed and cryogenic compatible at -271.3ºC, colder than outer space (-270.5ºC), our SiO2 assemblies deliver the phase matching, phase stability, and radiation resistance that is enabling the next generation of scientific discovery.
