The 9 MV FN Pelletron tandem accelerator was installed in 1973 and, ever since, was employed for basic
science and applied research experiments, at an average rate of 5500 hours/year. Its activity is supervised
by an International Program Advisory Committee (PAC), which coordinates also the 3 MV Tandetron, which was
installed in 2012, and is mainly used for ion beam analysis (IBA) and ion implantation experiments and the
1 MV Tandetron accelerator which is used for accelerator mass spectrometry measurements (AMS), particularly
radiocarbon dating experiments.
