In the fall of 1995 Tim had the idea to build a cyclotron. In September 1999 it achieved its first beam. In 2001 it was moved into the Modern Physics teaching lab at Rutgers University’s Physics department. In 2016 it was moved to a dedicated undergraduate accelerator teaching lab at the University of Maryland.
Because the 12-Inch Cyclotron has its own website, we will only give a brief overview of the machine. This site will host the experiments performed with the cyclotron.
