  • Solid state klystron modulators
  • Power systems for particle sources and electron coolers
  • High-voltage platforms for experiments
  • High-voltage power supplies for electrostatic deflectors and lenses
  • Special power systems for experiments
  • Static VAR compensators and harmonics filters


  • Power electronics
  • Power quality
  • Analog and digital electronics
  • High precision current and voltage measurements
  • radiation effects on electronics and mitigation techniques
  • Control system
  • real-time computing and embedded software
