This simulation illustrates the operation of a cyclotron, showing a charged particle moving through combined magnetic and electric fields. The particle, started near the center of the cyclotron, accelerates when passing through the gap between the electric electrodes and is turned by a perpendicular magnetic field. The geometry of the cyclotron, the magnitude of the electric and magnetic fields, and the properties of the charge are all adjustable. This page includes links to information on the operation of cyclotrons.
