Equations, graph and simulation of a cyclotron.
Uses of radioactive beams generated by the cyclotron are given, as is a point and click diagram of the NSCL facility which gives further information. A graph showing Isotopes made is provided.
The cyclotron was one of the earliest types of particle accelerators, and is still used as the first stage of some large multi-stage particle accelerators. It makes use of the magnetic force on a ...
A site describing the work of Ernest Lawrence and the setting up of the cyclotron at Berkeley.
Leo Szilard (1898 - 1964) ideas included the linear accelerator, cyclotron, electron microscope, and nuclear chain reaction. Equally important was his insistence that scientists accept moral ...
Ernest Orlando Lawrence (1901 - 1958) invented the cyclotron, a device for accelerating nuclear particles to very high velocities without the use of high voltages.
Use a salad bowl, some aluminium tape, a pair of scissors, 3 leads with 4mm jacks, 2 crocodile clips, a ping pong ball, some Nickel spray and a Van de Graaff generator to make a model of how ...
