The Cyclotron is used as on of the "Topics for Exploration" in undergrad courses 387, 388, 389, and the graduate course 506.
OTHER CYCLOTRON BUILDERS:
- Fred Niell built a homemade cyclotron and used it to win the 1994 ISEF and a trip to see the Nobel Prize Ceremonies.
- The Cyclotron Kids AKA, Heidi Baumgartner and Peter Heuer are two talented high school students building their own cyclotron at J-Lab !
- Leslie Dewan began a cyclotron while an undergrad nuclear engineering student at MIT.
- James Kwolik has a bunch of parts for his cyclotron already and is almost there !
- Raymond Jimenez has made plans to build, not a cyclotron, but a synchrotron.
- Chris Olsen also built a homemade cyclotron and several linear accelerators.
- Barry Thomas King's senior thesis on building a permanent magnet cyclotron in 2002.
- Jeff C. Smith built a cyclotron for his senior thesis at Knox College in 2001.
- Carl Willis has not built a cyclotron, but he is an accelerator guy and needs to be known !
- Boys Build a Cyclotron, obviously not a PC title; girls can build cyclotrons too !
- Moon-Jhong Rhee participated in building cyclotron in black and white days - his office is in the next building over. I should meet him !
- Albert Swank built a homemade cyclotron for a science fair project at 17, then in 2005 he wanted to get a surplus PET cyclotron.
