The 10 MeV cyclotron was designed for next version in Sungkyunkwan University, after the SKKUCY-9 had developed for medical application for PET. The RF cavity, which generates the electric field in cyclotron, was designed based on a half-wavelength resonator and optimized to improve the unloaded quality factor (Q0). The design specifications of RF cavity were resonance frequency 83.2 MHz, Q0 5830 and Dee voltage 40 kV with geometrical values resonator length 560 mm, Dee angle 35° and Stem radius 16 mm. The RF cavity of the SKKUCY-10 was fabricated and installed inside the electromagnet, and RF characteristics were measured with a network analyzer. The RF coupling coefficient and characteristic impedance for desired condition were selected at 1.08 and 52 ’, respectively. The RF coupling coefficient and characteristic impedance were measured 0.8-1.2, 52-49 ’ according to temperature as 15-21°C. The power coupler was checked for optimization of RF coupling coefficient and characteristic impedance, and the results show good agreement with simulated and measured data.
