Abstract

The specialized DC-110 heavy ion cyclotron has been developed and created at the Laboratory of Nuclear Reactions of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research for the BETA research and production complex in Dubna (Russia), which allows producing intense accelerated Ar, Kr, and Xe ion beams with a fixed energy of 2.5 MeV/nucleon. Commissioning works on the cyclotron complex, during which the design parameters were obtained, were carried out at the end of 2012. During commissioning of the accelerator, vertical displacement of the beam was found at the final acceleration radii and during its extraction. It is shown that the main cause of this displacement was the occurrence of a radial component of the magnetic field in the median plane of the magnet caused by asymmetry of the magnetic circuit. Vertical beam displacement was corrected by creating asymmetry of the current in the main electromagnet winding of the DC-110 cyclotron.
