American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition
- n. A cyclotron that accelerates protons and positive ions by using frequency modulation to synchronize the phase of the accelerating potential with the frequency of the accelerated particles to compensate for relativistic increases in particle mass at high speeds.
- n. A particle accelerator like a cyclotron, but which operates at variable frequency to account for the particles gaining energy, allowing for greater energies to be achieved.
- n. cyclotron that achieves relativistic velocities by modulating the frequency of the accelerating electric field
- From synchro- + cyclotron. (Wiktionary)
“The largest synchrocyclotron still in use is located in Gatchina outside St Petersburg and it accelerates protons to a kinetic energy of 1,000 MeV.”
“The accelerator has then been rebuilt and operates, since 1986, as a sector-focusing cyclotron-synchrocyclotron hybrid.”
“Inspired by the Berkeley work it was decided to build a synchrocyclotron.”
“(CW) cyclotron or isochronous cyclotron, to differentiate it from the frequency modulated (FM) cyclotron or the synchrocyclotron.”
“Research to build a synchrocyclotron which became operational in early 1950.”
