Tomsk scientists have created a tiny, powerful particle accelerator Source:

Recently we wrote about the fact that on the basis of Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU) made from the walls of the same educational institutions came not less interesting news. The specialists of TPU managed to develop a miniature betatron, which is twice as powerful as its predecessor with the same energy consumption.

Betatrons at the moment, the smallest particle accelerators. They are used in industry to control the strength of welding or casting, and also in systems. Betatron, created by Tomsk experts, is called the Small Size Electron Accelerator or abbreviated SEA-7. Figure 7 indicates that the device requires energy to 7 MeV. The radiation power of the betatron SEA energy 7 MeV x-ray is 10 meter per minute, which allows to create x-rays that can "Shine through" steel thickness up to 40 cm. The first batch of devices already available for use in other countries. Says head of the laboratory of high-current betatron of the Institute of NDT TPU Maxim Rychkov

«Three betatron SEA-7 are already working in India, UK and Indonesia foundry industries. One of these companies is engaged in the inspection of castings of high-pressure valves for oil and gas. With the help of our betatron is possible to check out large items for cracks and other defects. Development can scan not only finished products but also parts in the manufacturing process, allowing at the stage of production to avoid the risk of defective products».

It is Worth saying that TPU is currently the world's only developer and manufacturer of the betatron, and the plans of scientists includes the creation of a new generation of betatrons, whose main advantage is to increase their performance at least twice.
