Vega Accelerator

The 1MV Vega Accelerator is designed with the capability to perform high efficiency, high precision 14C and actinide mass spectrometry.

Large beam-optical acceptance ensures high quality and high throughput for radiocarbon measurements. High mass resolution analysers, at low and high energy, coupled to a novel fast isotope switching system, enable high quality analysis of actinide radioisotopes.

It has been custom built to Centre for Accelerator Science specifications taking into account recent overseas developments and allowing for future development possibilities including a second ion source.
