Particle accelerator, beam transport, experiments

From ion source to target

In the ion source, gas was ionized, the ions were then accelerated with electric fields inside the cyclotron vacuum chamber. When the desired energy was reached, the particles were led out by the extraction system. The beam transport lead the extracted particles to the experimental halls where they were either used for direct irradiation or to meet a target that caused nuclear reactions that produced other desired particles which were then used for irradiation.
