The Linac Booster (LIBO) is a prototype machine for producing particle beams for cancer therapy. Hadron therapy techniques are able to reach deep tumours with less damage to surrounding tissue than with conventional radiotherapy.
Prototype CLIC accelerating structures and components in the high-accelerating gradient test area. Specially adapted versions of this equipment will form heart of the high-performance accelerator of a future clinical FLASH facility.
GaToroid is new compact non-rotating gantry design that enables the treatment of tumours from different angles. Based upon a toroidal magnet concept, it has the advantages of eliminating the need to mechanically rotate the structure and of making the overall system extremely compact and lightweight compared to conventional gantries
