Description

The 88-Inch is a K=140 sector-focused cyclotron with both light- and heavy-ion capabilities. Protons and other light-ions are available at high intensities (10-20 p?A) up to maximum energies of 55 MeV (protons), 65 MeV (deuterons), 170 MeV (3He) and 140 MeV (4He). Most heavy ions through uranium can be accelerated to maximum energies which vary with the mass and charge state.The 88-Inch Cyclotron supports ongoing research programs in nuclear structure, astrophysics, heavy element studies, fundamental interactions, symmetries, and technology R&D by LBNL and U.C. Berkeley. Major instrumentation at the 88-Inch Cyclotron include the Berkeley Gas-filled Separator (BGS), and VENUS, the most powerful superconducting ECR ion source in the world.
