Harvard Cyclotron Laboratory
The Harvard Cyclotron Laboratory (HCL) operated from 1949 to 2002. It was most notable for its contributions to the development of proton therapy. The Harvard Cyclotron Laboratory was built with office of Naval Research funds between 1946 and 1949 to replace an earlier, lower energy, cyclotron that was sent to Los Alamos for use in the Manhattan Project.Until 1961, the laboratory primarily performed experiments in physics.The lab performed research and development in particle physics (including particle detectors development and testing), activation analysis, radiobiology, and solid state physics.
