The MGC-20 isochronous cyclotron is designed for acceleration of hydrogen and helium isotopes with capability of their energy variation. The cyclotron is capable to handle either internal or external ion beams. Being furnished with beryllium target the cyclotron becomes a source of fast neutron flow.
The MGC-20 can be used for production of radionuclides and for research in nuclear physics, activation analysis, neutron therapy, material structure analysis, etc.
