CYCLONE is an isochronous cyclotron in operation in Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium). It is equipped with a P. I. G. hot cathode heavy ion source and accelerates various ions up to energies of 110 MeV Q2/A with extracted beam intensities reaching 10 ¿A in the 4+ state. The source is described and some performance parameters are given. In order to reach higher charge states an injector cyclotron is projected which will allow a final energy of 27 MeV/nucleon up to neon decreasing to 6 MeV/nucleon for xenon. Extracted intensities vary between 5 × 1013 and 109 pps depending on particle and energy. Some design aspects are described which will allow the cost of the project to be quite low.
