The Institute for Pulsed Power and Microwave Technology at a Glance

The Institute for Pulsed Power and Microwave Technology (IHM) is doing research and development as well as education and technology transfer in the areas of pulsed power and high-power microwave technologies.

We are focusing on:

 

  • Fundamental research
    • electron beam physics and beam target interactions
    • fretting (wear resistance of materials) 
    • generation, transmission and conversion of high electromagnetic fields at millimeter wave frequencies
    • plasma-wall interaction

 

  • Application of the results
    • to generate pulsed electron beams with large diameters and sufficient beam energies
    • to improve the wear resistance and the liquid metal corrosion of steels
    • to electroporate biomasses and to stimulate biological cells to supply Megawatt power levels for electron-cyclotron resonance heating and control
    • to apply high-power microwaves to materials by developing large-scale microwave ovens and specific microwave tools
    • to predict the impact of transients on the erosion and lifetime of wall materials of future fusion reactors

FSW 2014
Fallstudienwettbewerb 2014

Am 03. Juni fand am Institut für Hochleistungsimpuls- und Mikrowellentechnik (IHM) die Vorrunde für den Bezirk Baden zum VDE/Rohde & Schwarz Fallstudienwettbewerb 2014 statt. Teilgenommen haben in diesem Jahr 3 Teams, die sich jeweils aus 5 bis 6 Studenten verschiedener Hochschulen, insbesondere natürlich des KIT und der Hochschule Karlsruhe zusammensetzten.
