Our working horse - the 6 MV Tandem accelerator.
Our working pony - the 0.6 MV tandem accelerator Tandy.
Our full in-house development:
The 200 kV Tandem Accelerators (Micadas) for radiocarbon dating and biomedical applications.
In the last few years, our studies have concentrated on the development of smaller, more user-friendly and less expensive instrumentats in the fields of accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) and ion beam analysis (IBA).
These goals have been achieved through basic research in ion beam physics, by testing new concepts and ideas and through the incorporation of know-how from other fields of science.
The excellent infrastructure and know-how available at the ETH Physics Department and various divisions at PSI allow us to design and build ion sources, detection and analyzing devices and even complete small AMS facilities in-house. With a staff of highly experienced technicians, some of the design work and construction of instrumentation can also be done within our group. This staff also guarantees excellent maintenance and is instrumental in the continuous upgrading of existing instruments.
-> Our latest development: An ultra compact radiocarbon dating system
-> High precision radiocarbon facilities optimized for dating or biomedical applications
-> A variety of developments takes place at the multi-isotope system Tandy
-> At the Tandem facility new instrumentation is developed for ERDA, RBS, and Accelerator SIMS
