In Nazarbayev University (NU), a fundamental and applied research related to charged particles pulsed beam technologies is being actively developed. The first strategic step of our plan is the multiple purpose ion accelerator test-stand facility INURA which was developed and built in 2016-2017 and would be commisioned in Q1 of 2018 at NU. INURA ion accelator will generate 0.4 MeV ion beam with 50-70 ns pulse lengh and ion - beam current up to 10kA. A power density of the beam would be able to reach 0.1-0.15 MW/cm2 at focus. At these parameters, the ion accelerator is an effective tool for the modification of various materials, nanostructed materials modification, ion implantation etc.
INURA will be a multy-functional accelerator suitable for research in the demanding fields of particle beams, pulsed accelerators, plasma physics and material science while at the same time efficient training facility for students and young researchers and engineers for the benefit of Kazakhstan's developing high tech industry.
