Physics at the Birmingham cyclotron

Dr Carl Wheldon, University of Birmingham

 

Cyclotrons are devices that accelerate charged particles in circular orbits. The Birmingham machine is a Scanditronix MC40 model which is used daily to accelerate beams of hydrogen and helium to produce medical isotopes, develop applications and study fundamental nuclear physics. The Birmingham cyclotron facility is also unique being the only university based cyclotron in the country.  This talk will briefly describe the history of accelerators at Birmingham before elucidating some of the research carried out here.
