Antares accelerator

The 10MV ANTARES (Australian National Tandem Research Accelerator) accelerator provides ion beams with energies from 5 to 100 MeV, depending on the ion species, with beam intensities up to a few microampers. Virtually any naturally occurring isotope can be produced as a beam, free from contamination of other isotope species or molecular ions.


ANTARES was commissioned in 1991 and has been continuously upgraded since then.
