Particle therapy utilizing proton and carbon ions has become a mainstream modality of radiation therapy for cancer patients. The cyclotron is a major medical accelerator especially in proton therapy and superconducting (sc-) compact and synchro cyclotrons have become commercially available in recent years. The first sc-cyclotron for proton therapy was constructed for PSI Switzerland, which was designed in early 2000’s by Accel Instruments together with the cyclotron group of Michigan State University. Some design details will be presented along with recent developments of compact sc-cyclotrons. When the PSI therapy cyclotron was commissioned, beam optics simulation and magnetic field calculations were confirmed to be reliable with beam measurement in the cyclotron.
In addition to my previous works, design considerations of heavy-ion accelerator facility based on high-intensity sc-linac will be presented together with the progress of rare isotope science project (RISP) under way in Korea.
