  In 2017 the new cyclotron has been successfully commissioned and started the operation at Laboratori Nazionali di Legnaro (LNL) of INFN . The cyclotron is the proton driver foreseen for the Selective Production of Exotic Species (SPES) project, providing the high power beam for radioactive ion beams (RIBs) production by the ISOL technique. The SPES facility is today under construction and first low energy RIBs are expected to be available on 2021. The facility has been designed in order to exploit the versatility of the cyclotron in terms of wide range of energy and beam current extracted: 35-70 MeV energy and 20 nA - 500 µA of average current. Moreover, the possibility to extract at the same time two proton beams allows to share these both for experimental physics session and applications. In particular, at LNL a collaboration between private company and public institution will lead to a profitable synergy in R&D of new radioisotopes and the related production. In the session the results of the commissioning and the operation of cyclotron will be presented as well as the description of the SPES facility together with its potentiality in nuclear physics research and applications.

  For more than 20 years eye tumours are treated in collaboration with the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin. The close co-operation between Charité and HZB permits joint interdisciplinary research. Irradiations with either a sharp, well focused or a broad beam, either in vacuum or in air are possible. In addition, a 60Co-source for gamma-irradiations is available. Experiments now comprise dosimetry, detector comparisons, ambulant mouse irradiations, including class I gene-modified mice. Furthermore, radiation hardness tests on detectors, CCD-cameras and other electronics are performed. In order to improve the beam diagnosis between the 2 MV injector Tandetron and the cyclotron a harp has been installed, leading to new beam line calculations for the injection line. The accelerator operation for therapy as well as on-going experiments and results will be presented.

TUC03 AGOR Status Report 256

TThe operations of the superconducting cyclotron AG-OR over the past years will be reviewed. Reliability issues encountered after nearly 25 years of operation and mitigation measures to warrant reliable operation for the coming decade will be discussed. The research performed with AGOR has significantly shifted from fundamental physics to radiation biology and medical radiation physics, both in collaboration with the Groningen Proton Therapy Center, and radiation hardness studies. The radiation biology research will be substantially expanded in the coming years with a new beam line for image guided preclinical research. For this research new dose delivery modalities including scanning, spatial fractionation and very high dose rates are developed. In addition a new program has been started on the production of exotic nuclei, for which a new superconducting solenoid fragment separator will be developed. For the radiation hardness testing a cocktail beam at 30 MeV/amu with several ion species up to Xe has been developed and is now routinely delivered for experiments. A cocktail at 15 MeV/amu up to Bi is under development.

    RCNP, Osaka, Japan
  Research Center for Nuclear Physics (RCNP), Osaka University operates a K140 AVF cyclotron and a K400 ring cyclotron and promotes the nuclear physics, accelerator physics, material science, nuclear medicine and related scientific fields. In the recent years, we operated the CAGRA campaign and Grand-RAIDEN+CAGRA campaign experiments* for taking advantage of the low background environment of the RCNP experimental halls and the high quality beams. We have successfully completed the low energy muon beam line, MuSIC**. We have been carrying out a program of the upgrade of the K140 AVF cyclotron which continued working since 1973. We aim at 10 times higher intensity for the proton beam than before and further stability of the operation. We also carried out the upgrade of the cyclotron building and related facilities to handle beams with higher intensity. From 2019, the RCNP started the Research Center of Subatomic Sciences as the International Joint Usage/Research Center in Japan. These upgrades are the most important programs to extend the function of the newly established center.
