A type of circular particle accelerator for accelerating electrons to energies of several megaelectronvolts, in which the time of successive revolutions of the particles increases by exactly one cycle of the accelerating radio-frequency voltage, so that synchronism is maintained.



a cyclic resonant electron accelerator with a magnetic field that is constant over time, a constant frequency of the accelerating voltage, and a variable frequency ratio.
