The indispensable simulator for scientists, academics and researchers
From developing insert coils for ultra high field magnets used in research applications, to the compensation of space charge for positive ion beams using electron injection and confinement in nonuniform magnetic fields, Opera’s advanced electromagnetic simulation has proved an indispensable companion to scientists, academics and researchers.

Ion Beam Sources
Once regarded as exotic technology, ion beams are now used routinely in a wide range of industrial, scientific and medical applications, from ion beam etching and implantation in the semiconductor industry, through explosive detection, spacecraft thrusters and fusion plasma heating systems, to ion-beam therapy in the treatment of cancer.

“Because of the accuracy of the Opera magnetostatic simulation performance software’s magnetic length and field quality predictions, we no longer need to incorporate any means of performing post-production field quality correction.”
Daniel Schoerling, Project Engineer, CERN
Used by universities, engineering companies and research organisations worldwide, Opera is the design tool of choice of CERN’s Technology Department for all normal-conducting (NC) magnets.
