The status of the project of the DC-280 cyclotron is presented. The DC-280 will be the basic facility of the Super Heavy Element Factory which is being created at the FLNR JINR. The energy of the ions extracted from the cyclotron will be vary from 4 up to 8 MeV/amu. The expected ion beam intensity at DC-280 extraction is 10 pmkA for ions with masses 50-60. The main parts of the DC-280 are...

For nearly 20 years, eye tumours are treated in collaboration with the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin. In January 2017 we celebrated the 3000th patient. Parallel to the ongoing tumour therapy, beam time was allocated to experiments. These ranged from radiation hardness testing and nuclear physics over dosimetry to accelerator development. Single pulses of Protons and Helium with...

An in-air heavy ion irradiation facility equipped for providing masses up to xenon at 30 MeV/u is being developed at the Kernfysisch Versneller Instituut Center for Advanced Radiation Technology (KVI-CART). KVI-CART has operated a proton irradiation facility for radiobiological research since 1998. Since 2005, this facility has also been used for radiation hardness testing. The K600...

The GANIL facility (Grand Accélérateur National d’Ions Lourds) at Caen is dedicated for acceleration of heavy ion beams for nuclear physics, atomic physics, and radiobiology and material irradiation. Nowadays, an intense exotic beam is produced by the Isotope Separation On-Line method at the SPIRAL1 facility since 2001. New demands from the physics community motivated the upgrade of this...

The effort at the Texas A&M Cyclotron Institute to produce reaccelerated, radioactive beams is progressing. The K150 cyclotron in combination with ion guides will be used for the production of radioactive ions to be then charge-bred by an electron-cyclotron ion source (ECRIS) for acceleration to intermediate energies by the K500 cyclotron. The methods for tuning and detecting the radioactive...
