    Hello, I was wondering if anyone would be able to tell me the key differences between a betatron accelerator and a cyclotron accelerator. Thanks :)

    Hello Trevor, welcome to PF :smile: !

    PF culture leaves some initiative witth the poster. You must have googled the words and found some sites that mention both ?
    From a comparison of betatron and cyclotron you can formulate a fairly straightforward answer to your question. If, after reading, you still have questions, we'll be glad to try and help with further answers !
