Unique capabilities for nozzle manufacturing

SourceLAB developed a range of solutions for nozzle manufacturing and characterization:

Flow simulation

  • From a CAD file or specifications

Manufacturing

  • Metal, ceramic, 3D printing
  • Down to 30 µm hole with complex shapes
  • SS manufacturing up to 58 HRC

Characterization

  • Density profile
  • Interferometry from Phasics

Examples of nozzles complex shapes manufacturing

 

Specific nozzles for interaction regimes

To make it possible for the experimentalist to explore precise interaction regimes and physics, SourceLAB developed a unique class of nozzles associated to precise manufacturing capabilities, that give access to specific plasma shapes and densities.

Each nozzle of the class can be easily fixed on a rapid valve to get the desired output flow.

In particular, our new class SL-Noz-Comp (see specifications), is specially designed to generate sub- 100 μm plasma of near-critical density, without external shocks from blades or cooling devices.

Importantly, it produces sub-μm dense plasmas at a larger distance from the nozzle exit than the standard 400 μm sonic nozzle. Therefore the lifetime of the nozzle is significantly increased while ensuring outstanding performances.

Corresponding atomic density map and projection measured at the exit.
The backing pressure reads 320 bar.
