 The 4MV model KNaccelerator from High Voltage Engineering was located at Queens University in Kingston, Ontario. The picture shows its position for the last decades. After funding in Canada was discontinued the machine has been moved to the Nuclear Structure Laboratory in the Department of Physics at the University of Notre Dame for further use in nuclear astrophysics and applied research.

Machine Parameters

This 1MV model JN accelerator from High Voltage Engineering was located at the University of Toronto, Canada. It has been used extensively by the ND nuclear astrophysics group for reaction studies in stellar hydrogen and helium burning. The accelerator has been moved to ND in 1996 to intensify their program.
