First promising results of the helicon plasma generator showing inductive and helicon regimes at low power for DEMO/Eurofusion project.
Helyssen is developping
Here is a Brief overview of Helyssen ICP sources and its industrial applications presented at Berlin EPS conference.
Dr Hollenstein (CRPP/EPFL) received the Innovation Award 2014 from the European physical society.
Find attached his vision about industrial plasmas where Helyssen sources are quoted as future technologies.
