Description: The Cyclotron building is located on the southwest corner of Bogue Street and Shaw Lane in the Central Academic District. The location of this project is consistent with the Campus Master Plan and Planning Principles.
The planning of this project includes an extension at the east end of the existing National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) main crane bay and a new experimental systems crane bay north of the new main crane structure and east of the low-energy experimental research addition area.
The NSCL's planned upgrade of its ReA3 superconducting linear accelerator to ReA12 will provide world-unique beams of rare isotopes. This new capability requires a new suite of complementary experimental equipment. The higher energy beams from the ReA12 accelerator require more shielding. An overhead crane is needed to accomodate the shielding requirements and to lift heavy equipment.
Timeline: Construction began in October 2010, was substantially completed in September 2011 with final completion being reached by October 2012.
