UW Medical Cyclotron Facility

High Frequency RF Phase Meter

The UW Medical Center Cyclotron accelerates particles using two high frequency RF signals. The phase difference between the signals is a critical parameter in the acceleration inside the cyclotron and the extraction efficiency of the test particles. The student team designed, built, and tested a new RF phase meter system which accurately detects this phase difference with improved components to replace an outdated and hard to maintain system while providing thorough and accurate documentation that can be further utilized by the UWMCF staff.
