The Cyclotron Accelerator

This is a charged particle accelerator, 20Me V, ion beam current 50 u.A. it accelerates protons, deuteron, Helim-3 and -4. It is a Russian type, facility acquired through an IAEA TC program.

The accelerator is equipped with channels for short lived radioisotope production (Ga 67, In-111, I-123), for fast neutron production (>4Me V) and for materials science industrial applications.

The Cyclotron accelerator has also provisions of sensitive nuclear techniques for microanalysis in fields related to environment, geology physics, chemistry, biology, archaeology and materials.
