Who Is SLAC?

SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory is one of 10 Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science laboratories and is operated by Stanford University on behalf of the DOE. They built the world’s longest particle accelerator, discovered some of the fundamental building blocks ofmatter and created the first website in North America.

What Did EDM Do?

EDM was able to utilize micro manufacturing capabilities to manufacture the necessary components for SLAC testing experiments. Specifically, cooper and stainless steel structures were micro manufactured to study effect of “material on rf breakdown at short pulse, 100 GHz”-SLAC. EDM Department is capable of aspect ratios up to 38:1 feature sizes as small as 40μm and tolerances as low as 1 micron which, in this instance, allowed for extremely precise experiments and testing.
