The TSL is a university facility, based in Uppsala, Sweden.
The Gustaf Werner cyclotron at TSL provides particle beams for:
Radiation testing: Beamtime can be used for neutron and proton irradiation projects. Read more about our irradiation facilities.
Basic research: There are some time for basic (academic) research and in this case the experiments should be associated to Uppsala University or to EU projects. Read more about basic (academic) research at TSL.
Machine running in FM-mode and producing 180 MeV protons. Users in Blue Hall using PAULA(protons) resp ANITA(neutrons < 180MeV) irradiation facilities.
TSL Surplus campaign nr 1 is over, we are now clearing out leftovers and gathering equipment for next campaign. TSL Surplus campaign nr 2 will start within the coming weeks..
New year, new challenges
TSL wish all present and former customers a Happy and Prosperous New Year!
Closing down for service and vacations
On Friday Dec 18 we are closing down for service and vacations.
There was a symposium held on November 27, 2015, giving highlights of the scientific activities at GWI and TSL from 1949 until 2015.
Here is the program of the Symposium with links to the presentations.
Proton therapy at TSL has ended.
The first patient was irradiated on 23 November 1957.
The last patient was irradiated on Friday 12 Juni 2015.
The proton therapy will continue at the new Skandion clinic, also in Uppsala.
A new irradiation position, CUP (Close User Position) has been constructed, characterized, and put into operation at the ANITA facility for accelerated testing of components and systems for single event effects. The energy-integrated neutron flux above 10 MeV, amounting to more than 107 cm-2 · s-1, is the highest among the facilities with atmospheric-like spectra. Results of beam characterization measurements are reported in the recent publication:
A.V. Prokofiev, E. Passoth, A. Hjalmarsson and M. Majerle, ”CUP – A New High-Flux Irradiation Position at the ANITA Neutron Facility at TSL”, IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science, Vol. 61, pp 1929-1936 (2014).
