Cyclotrons are particle accelerators used to produce radioactive isotopes. Cyclotrons typically produce a high neutron population and gamma rays. Two major fields that Pitts Little works with cyclotron owners are: for research institutions and for the radiopharmaceutical industry. Pitts Little Corporation is frequently employed to help solve complex shielding issues surrounding cyclotrons. Not only does Pitts Little shield the cyclotron chamber, we also shield the beam line, target rooms and delivery lines. Pitts Little has also been called on to mitigate shielding issues discovered on cyclotron startup.
