Description

HUST proton therapy facility is a Major State Research & Development Program supported by MOST, China. This facility is based on an isochronous superconducting cyclotron with two gantry beam lines and one fixed beam line. This paper will discuss the beam optics and main magnetic elements including dipoles, quadrupoles and fast scanning magnets of the gantry beam line. As well as the Energy Selection System (ESS) will be introduced with key features which enable fast energy modulation of proton beam between 70 MeV to 240 MeV.
