VINCY (Vinca Cyclotron)

View All Former Yugoslavia Facilities

Last Updated: June 1, 2004
Other Name: N/A
Location: Vinca Institute of Nuclear Sciences
Subordinate To: N/A
Size: 0.86m in radius, upto 66 MeV
Facility Status: N/A

According to scientists at Vinca Institute of Nuclear Sciences, the Institute is presently constructing the VYNCY cyclotron, as part of the TESLA Accelerator Installation. [1] The installation will consist of three machines: the VINCY Cyclotron, the VINIS Ion Source, which is a volume light ion source, and the mVINIS Ion Source, which is an electron cyclotron resonance heavy ion source. [2] The VINCY Cyclotron is a compact four-sector isochronous cyclotron. [3] It was designed to accelerate light and heavy ions. The maximum ion energy is 36 MeV/n for heavy ions and 66 MeV for protons. [4]
