Cyclotron2

The GE PETtrace Cyclotron

The cyclotron is composed of many intricate parts as seen in the picture to the left:
  • Ion Source – Introduces charge particles to the accelerator
  • “Dees” – Responsible for alternating polarity which causes acceleration of the particle
  • Beam extractors – Redirect charge particles into targets
  • Target bodies – Hold highly purified material for transmutation
