  1. Hello my name is Austin Schneider and I am very intrigued my particle accelerators on may levels, I am currently a sophmore in Highschool and believe that building a cyclotron is the first step into my understanding of particle physics. I would love any help or advise you could contribute to my attempt at building a 150-200 keV cyclotron. I'm lost at where I should start in the construction of this machine as well as some of the parts of the design such as the DEE's and my electron source and a very important part which is how do I find how much vacuum I need to be able to achieve to reach this goal of 150-200 keV and coliding it down a linear tube into a solid structure then how to detect what has happend. If you would like to give me some insight into the development of cyclotrons shoot me an email at auschneider1999@gmail.com.

  2. Hi, my name is Orion Yeung and I'm pretty sure my friends and I are way over our heads, but we really wanted to try this. I was hoping you could give me a starting point to start to truly understand the making of a cyclotron (max 250 keV), I've taken AP Physics B so I'm not completely lost on this, but I'm a junior in high school and I'm running out of time to do this as a scientific achievement for high school that could get me into a good college with a scholarship. Whatever help you can offer would be duly appreciated, thank you.

Cyclotron Library is Complete !

by Timothy Koeth on 08-23-2012 at 05:35 PM

Thank you to all of those that helped bring this 15+ year quest to an end. Our Cyclotron Library now has a complete hardbound collection of proceedings from all of the cyclotron conference held to-date. To our knowledge this is the only complete set (there are probably others, but only a few at best). Contributions to this collection have come from all over: literally as nearby as the office next door to mine and as far away as Europe and Asia, and everywhere

Cyclotron Design Course

by Timothy Koeth on 07-16-2012 at 10:12 PM
Announcement: Tim Koeth and Amber Johnson will be teaching a cyclotron design course at US Particle Accelerator School (USPAS) in January 2013, which is taking place at Duke University. Previously, Tim has been a co-instructor of the Fundamentals of Accelerator Physics course at Stony Brook University in June 2011.

USPAS conducts graduate and undergraduate-level courses twice a year for two weeks at a time, at various universities throughout the United States. Students can apply for
