SEF has specialised in large-scale particle accelerators (synchrotrons, cyclotrons, linear accelerators…) ever since its creation in 1981. In this specific segment, the company is a historic partner with the main research organisations in France and Switzerland: GANIL in Caen, SOLEIL and CEA at Saclay, ESRF in Grenoble, and CERN in Geneva. A highly respected name in the field, SEF has acquired the experience and customer references to be considered for inclusion on fourth generation projects.
SEF also produces and assembles mechanical equipment for industrial leaders such as AIRBUS GROUP, SAFRAN, ONERA, TARAMM, SOTEREM, and others.
Proton therapy, among the many uses of cyclotrons, is a source of considerable hope in cancer treatment. Many centres are being planned throughout the world, and SEF is equipped to become a supplier to players in this sector.
