Linac 4 will bring the beam up to 160 MeV energy, more than three times the energy of its predecessor," CERN explained in the statement.
The remainder of the funding for the Linac machine came through donations given to the North Wales Cancer Treatment Centre through the North Wales NHS Charity, Awyr Las.
A linac, on the other hand, makes massive amounts of radiofrequency noise as it guides the electron beam through the machine to strike the target and generate X-rays.
With its six axis flexibility, the robot can position the linac beam to more than 100 specific nodes.
As a safety mechanism, the physicist and radiation oncologist confirm the correct adjustments on the LINAC have been made by using a correct size collimator.
The same linac type is also being considered for a process that changes nuclear waste's atomic structure, shortening its half-life and resulting in a faster decay.
Photo: Each of CEBAF's two linac cavities is to be able to speed electrons by 0.
Together, we will be able to grow the service business as well as Elekta's linac market share in Latin America.

In a report to the Board Damian Heron, Director of the North Wales Cancer Network, says the five options are to do nothing, to do nothing but extend the working day of the three remaining linacs, outsourcing activity to oncology centres outside North Wales, outsourcing and extending the working day, and replacing the obsolete linac.
With its initial clinical success, the Brainlab/Elekta solution is now being sought after by hospitals around the globe, reaffirming market preference for ExacTrac across several LINAC systems.
The PM5193 is a mechanically tunable pulse magnetron designed for use in linear accelerators and medical linac applications.
