Saskatoon's RMD Engineering brings expertise to synchrotron

A Saskatoon company is supplying a sophisticated device to the Canadian Light Source.

Company's 'elliptical polarizing undulator' will allow sophisticated electrical research

The latest experimental station at the Canadian Light Source features a mammoth machine made by a Saskatoon company.

RMD Engineering built the 'elliptical polarizing undulator' for sophisticated electrical experiments.

It's the largest machine of its kind in the world, weighing in at more than 13,000 kilograms and featuring 1,560 rare earth magnets.

It will be used to develop new generation superconductors -- and car batteries.
