TSL - The Svedberg Laboratory

The TSL is a university facility, based in Uppsala, Sweden.

Today there are no experiments or irradiation projects running at TSL. Uppsala University has decided to decommission the accelerator plant or transfer it to some other institute or company. The old organisation TSL has been replaced with a new, smaller organisation IFA-TSL, hosted under IFA, UU. The particle accelerator and the irradiation facilities are still in running conditions and will stay so during whole 2017!

Gustaf Werner cyclotron

The particle accelerator Gustaf Werner cyclotron at TSL provided up to June 2016 particle beams for:


Radiation testing: Beamtime was used for neutron and proton irradiation projects. Read more about the irradiation facilities.

Basic Research

Basic research: There were some time for basic (academic) research associated to Uppsala University or to EU projects. Read more about basic (academic) research at TSL.

Proton Therapy: This was the dominating activity during the years 2005-2015. Read more about Proton Therapy at TSL.

Exjobb at TSL

The title of a current Master Thesis project at TSL:

"Radioactive concrete - the true story revealed!"

The student is using the Monte Carlo code FLUKA to simulate radioactivity induced by fast neutrons in a concrete wall and compare the results with experimental measurements.
