Kyma Srl is a Limited Liability Company, set up by Elettra - Sincrotrone Trieste S.C.p.A. and the industrial companies Cosylab d.d. and Euromisure S.a.s., a division of Wika Group.


Kyma was established in 2007 for the purpose of designing, manufacturing, characterizing and commissioning insertion devices (undulators and wigglers) for light sources (synchrotrons and free-electron lasers).


During its first contract signed with Elettra for the realization of the undulators for the FERMI Free-Electron Laser at the Elettra site in Trieste, Italy, Kyma developed substantial know-how in this field. This allowed the company to enter the market of insertion devices for light sources, thus becoming one of the major players in the field, internationally recognized by the scientific community for its competence and reliability.


In a few years, Kyma has built and delivered more than 50 large insertion devices  and a variety of different types of equipment (e.g. laser heater undulators, phase shifters, magnetic measurement benches, undulator magnet structures, magnet arrays, etc.).
