From ion source to target
In the ion source, gas is ionized, the ions are then accelerated with electric fields inside the cyclotron vacuum chamber. When the desired energy is reached, the particles are led out by the extraction system. The beam transport leads the extracted particles to the experimental halls where they are either used for direct irradiation or to meet a target that causes nuclear reactions that produce other desired particles which are then used for irradiation.
Gustaf Werner Cyclotron
In the cyclotron the particles are accelerated.
The beam transport takes the particles to the experimantal halls
The Blue Hall is one of our experimental halls
In the Ion Source the ions that will be accelerated are produced
The Power Supplies feeds the different magnets of the particle accelerator
The Vacuum Systems creates a vacuum where to accelerate and transport the particles
