Superconducting Linear Accelerator

Pelletron Accelerator RBS-AMS Systems

The 15 UD pelletron is a versatile, heavy ion tandem type of electrostatic accelerator. In this machine, negative ions are produced and preaccelerated to ~300KeV in Ion Source and injected into strong Electrical field inside an accelerator tank filled with SF6 insulating gas.---more

The accelerating structure for the superconducting linac booster for the 15 UD Pelletron at IUAC is a Niobium Quarter Wave Resonator, designed and fabricated as a joint collaboration between IUAC and ANL, USA. Initial resonators required for the first linac module were fabricated at ANL.---more

Pelletron Accelerator RBS-AMS Systems (PARAS). Rutherford Backscattering Spectrometry (RBS) facility with 1.7 Million Volt Pelletron accelerator has been installed at IUAC. The facility is equipped with 1)Alphatross ion source---more

Accelerator Mass Spectroscopy

Low Energy Ion Beam Facilities

Accelerator Mass Spectrometry with 15UD Pelletron at IUAC is first AMS facility in India for the detection of 10Be and 26Al.---more

The Low Energy Ion Beam Facility (LEIBF) at the Inter-University Accelerator Centre provides multiply charged ion beams at a wide range of energies (a few keV to about an MeV) for experiments in Atomic, Molecular and materrial sciences.---more

Ongoing Projects

High Current Injector

Free Electron Laser

The High Current Injector (HCI) project at Inter University Accelerator Centre would use a Radio Frequency Quadrupole (RFQ), Drift Tube Linac (DTL) and low beta superconducting cavities to accelerate heavy ions---more
