A new Cyclotron arrived on 18 March, 2015

The cyclotron is purchased from a Belgian Company (IBA) and the  plan is to start installation of the  new 18 MeV cyclotron  in January of 2015. The cyclotron will be placed in a newly constructed, and specially designed building on the grounds of the laboratory. The new cyclotron, the Cyclone 18, is one of the most modern cyclotrons produced today in the world. The cyclotron will produce proton beams of up to 18 MeV energies.

APRD plans to conduct a series of experiments concerning radiation phenomena in 18 MeV proton irradiated silicon single crystals.
