Is ARRONAX similar to the other cyclotrons?

ARRONAX will be unique through the association of several characteristics:

  • a 70 MeV energy whereas the energy of the majority of biomedical cyclotrons does not exceed 30 MeV
  • a maximal intensity of 750 µA whereas the intensity of the majority of biomedical cyclotrons does not exceed 100 µA
  • the possibility to accelerate protons, deuterons and alpha particles whereas the majority of biomedical cyclotrons accelerates only protons.
