History

  • AccTec BV was founded in 1999 and started off with a 30 MeV AVF Philips cyclotron, which had been donated in 1967 by Philips company to Eindhoven University of Technology (TUE), and a 5 MeV electron Linac which was operated for irradiations for chemical research..AVF Philips cyclotron
  • The Philips cyclotron was replaced in 2003 by a new IBA Cyclone 30 cyclotron.At the same time as the new cyclotron, a 3.5 MV singletron was acquired from HVEE, Amersfoort, the Netherlands.
  • The cyclotron has been used for isotope production for Amersham - and since 2003 for General Electric Healthcare.
  • The Linac was dismantled in 2006.
  • For catalysis research short lived positron emitters have been produced. Various research groups at TUE and from elsewhere used the singletron for elemental analyses.
  • In the years 2007-2009 singletron beam time has been sold to MiPlaza (part of Philips Research), an organization wich performed materials analyses for many different groups from research institutes and industry. In 2009 this activity is transferred to AccTec BV.
  • In 2010 AccTec acquired the rights to technology recently developed by the group ‘Coherence and Quantum Technology’ of the Department of Applied Physics. The technology is presently being marketed in first instance in the scientific community.
  • In 2015 the element analysis activities were terminated. The Singletron has been transferred to the DIFFER institute on the TU/e campus.
