AGOR Cyclotron Facility

The AGOR cyclotron facility performs irradiations with protons and heavy ions for radio-biology research and radiation hardness testing of electronics and materials

For information or to apply for beam time you can contact us via e-mail: irradiations@kvi.nl

To apply for beam time we will need the following information:

  • Beam Particle
  • Energy:

10-184 MeV for protons

Maximum 90 MeV/amu for 4He, 12C, 16O of 20Ne

30 MeV/amu 20Ne, 40Ar, 84Kr of 124Xe

  • Flux:

1E4-1E8 protons per cm2 per second (depending on field)

10-10E5 ions per cm2 per second

  • Field shape and size
  • Field homogeneity
  • Description of samples (dimensions/materials)
  • Preference for period in which irradiation is to be planned.

 

For proton and carbon beams we can also irradiate using a spread-out Bragg peak.
