MDC SPHERICAL UHV CHAMBER

Progressing Fusion Energy Science at the University of Washington

January 24, 2017

MDC Vacuum Products, LLC, recently had the opportunity to design and manufacture a 60” spherical ultra-high vacuum chamber for Professor Setthivoine You and his team of researchers at the University of Washington (https://www.aa.washington.edu/research/youlab). This was both an exciting and challenging manufacturing job that allowed MDC to contribute to new and important research. The goal of this research is to simulate an accretion disk and astrophysical jet in the ultra-high vacuum chamber in order to study the properties of plasma and magnetic fields. This will help advance the understanding of how astrophysical jets become so large, sometimes hundreds of thousands of light years long, while maintaining stability.    Read more
