Van de Graaff gyorsító



Our 5-MV Van de Graaff ion accelerator was designed, built at the Central Research Institute for Physics, and started in normal operation on 12 March 1970.

Since then the accelerator has been reconstructed several times. Last reconstruction was in 1989-1992.

In 1997 the accelerator was connected to the heavy-ion cascade implanter.

In 2002-2003 a scanning proton microprobe was also installed. It is the energy-upgraded version of the Hamburg proton microprobe dismantled in 2001.
