electron synchrotron[i′lek‚trän ′siŋ·krə‚trän]
A circular electron accelerator in which the frequency of the accelerating system is constant, the strength of the magnetic guide field increases, and the electrons move in orbits of nearly constant radius.
a cyclic resonance accelerator of electrons with an orbit of constant radius. The guiding magnetic field increases with time, and the accelerating voltage is of constant frequency.
