These core technologies are applied to build systems for flash x-ray imaging, electron beam sterilization, for driving high power lasers (such as those used for fusion research), and for simulating radiation environments, such as space, to study how electronics, optics, and various materials are affected by electromagnetic radiation. The largest pulsed power systems built here produce millions of amps at millions of volts, delivered within hundreds of nanoseconds. Succeeding at these fast-paced, demanding conditions requires a talented team of curious, passionate scientists, designers, technicians, and engineers. The division conducts both R&D and manufacturing to serve a mix of government and commercial customers. Essential Functions:

  • Work with a team to conduct tests on pulsed power machines and radiation sources.
  • Help with design, fabrication, and troubleshooting of components of pulsed power systems and diagnostics.
