Working Group 6.41


The working group ‚Ion accelerators‘ is responsible for the operation, maintenance, and further development of the accelerator facility of the department.

The operators, technicians, and engineers are in charge of the two accelerators and the technical equipment of the beam guide system.

The 2 MV tandetron with 2 external ionsources and a chopper- buncher unit put into operation at 2018.

The variable-energy cyclotron is another key element of the facility.
