Superconducting Electron Linear Accelerators

Niowave was founded in 2005 by former National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory researcher, Terry Grimm, and a group of private investors. Since then, Niowave has become a world-wide leader in research, development, manufacturing and operation of superconducting electron linear accelerators. Their platform technologies are their particle accelerators and subsystems which are commercialized as stand-alone sources and as turnkey systems for the following applications:

-Medical & Industrial Radioisotopes

-Radiography & Active Interrogation

-Sterilization & Advanced Manufacturing

-Nuclear Energy Advanced Technologies

Niowave received a 2016 Small Business Administration Tibbetts award and was named the 2010 SBIR/STTR Small Business of the Year for the US Department of Energy. Their highly skilled workforce was built by combining the scientific and technical expertise from nearby world-class universities and national laboratories and the advanced manufacturing skills from the local auto industry and community colleges.
