Initial Performance of the, 184-Inch Cyclotron of the University of California
Phys. Rev. 71 (1947) 449;

The successful application of the principle of phase stability to a cyclotron has been reported from this Laboratory. The satisfactory results of these experiments, performed on the 37-inch cyclotron, led to the decision to complete the 184-inch cyclotron then under construction as a frequency modulated machine. It is the purpose of this note to describe briefly the equipment and experiments by which deuteron and alpha-particle beams of approximately 200 and 400 MeV, respectively, have been produced. (Extracted from the introductory part of the paper.).
