Focusing Limit

Limitations arise from better models of a cyclotron. For example, the beam is stabilized in the z-direction by azimuthally modulating the magnetic field: as the particles spin around the centre of the cyclotron they experience a "wobble" in the field. This focuses the beam in the vertical direction, and the focusing limit Kf is the energy up to which particles can be accelerated without being defocused. This region is given by
  • T / A  <  Kf  (Z / A)
