The TSL is a university facility, based in Uppsala, Sweden.
The Gustaf Werner cyclotron at TSL provides particle beams for:
Proton therapy: The main activity of TSL is based on an agreement between Uppsala Academic Hospital and Uppsala University about proton therapy, read more about proton therapy at TSL.
Radiation testing: Beamtime not used for proton therapy will be devoted to commercial neutron and proton irradiation projects. Read more about our irradiation facilities.
Basic research: There will still be 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.
We are up running again after service break. Welcome with beamtime requests.
A recent public status report can be found in proceedings from Cyclotrons 2013, Vancouver, "STATUS REPORT ON THE GUSTAV WERNER CYCLOTRON AT TSL, UPPSALA".
ANITA-CUP, new user position with extra high neutron flux
During 2013 a new irradiation position was constructed, characterized, and put into operation at the ANITA facility for accelerated neutron SER testing. The neutron flux, ≈107 cm-2s-1, is the highest among facilities with atmospheric-like spectrum. See the poster about ANITA-CUP that was presented on RADECS2013 (Oxford, UK, 23-27 Sep 2013) and on the Workshop on fast neutron applications at spallation sources (Abingdon, UK 30 Sep - 1 Oct 2013).
Upcoming shutdown for service, March 21-24.
TSL will be closed for mid semester service during March 21 - 24, 2014.
On the TODO-list: Rf-systems, water cooling system, ion sources, vaccuum, fire protection systems and more.
Curiosity´s radiation instrument calibrated at TSL
Since August 2012 the space rover Curiosity has been exploring Mars surface. Did you know that the rover´s instrument for measuring radiation was calibrated at TSL?
Read more about it in this Uppsala University article.
See graphs of radiation levels on the RAD site.
