In this video series we talk to a range of Opera users from industry including machine designers, electron beam gun users and the use of Opera at CERN. Discover how Opera has helped engineers and designers overcome their design challenges, and how its level of accuracy compares to other simulation software packages.

Colin Ribton, TWI

Colin Ribton is a physicist working as a Technology Consultant at TWI, a Cambridge based engineering consultancy. His role is in the design of electron guns, lenses and deflection systems for industrial applications such as X-ray generation, metal 3D printing, welding and melting. He uses Opera 2D and 3D software suites during the design process, and most projects involve verification through prototype build and test to demonstrate that customer requirements are met.

Stephen M. Elliott, Thin Film Consulting

During his career, Stephen M. Elliott has worked on the development of very high voltage generators, ion beam sources, electron guns, linear accelerators, field effect emitting devices, pulsed high current systems, magnetron sputtering cathodes, and plasma deposited thin film coatings. In 1991, he founded Thin Film Consulting to provide research and development services for charged particle and high voltage devices, thin film vapor sources, materials science, and process development.  In 1993, Mr. Elliott implemented use of advanced software for charged particle and high voltage device simulation.  Since then, he has developed X-ray sources, neutron generators, plasma and surface ion beam sources, electron guns, cavity resonators, klystrons, high voltage generators, ion spacecraft thrusters, thin film deposition vapor sources, and pulsed power machines.

Marcel Kruip, Tokamak Energy

Tokamak Energy was established in 2009 to design and develop small spherical tokamaks to produce neutrons for a range of scientific applications. In 2012, with the emergence of high temperature superconductor materials in a form suitable for winding into magnets, their focus and strategy changed to find a ’faster way to fusion’.
