Scientific Description
The main accelerator facility at JYFL consisting of a K=130 cyclotron with two ECR ion sources and a multi-cusp ion source delivers one of the largest varieties of stable ion beams (from p to Xe) suitable for modern nuclear physics research and applications. Recently the target hall was extended and equipped with an additonal new K=30 MeV light-ion cyclotron and associated beam lines. Commissioning of the system took place in 2009 and it will result in long and difficult experiments, as well as developmental work at both accelerators. A Pelletron accelerator (1.5 MV) is attached to the JYFL target hall and is available to users.

Equipment
MCC30/15 light ion cyclotron

A dedicated accelerator for protons (18 - 30 MeV) and deuterons (9 - 15 MeV).

K-130 cyclotron

Isochronous cyclotron equipped with two external electron-cyclotron-resonace (ECR) ion sources and a multicusp light-ion source, which can deliver an exceptionally large variety of heavy- and light-ion beams up to an energy of 130 q2/A MeV.

Pelletron

1.7 MV Tandem accelerator for materials physics.
