Luis Alvarez with Lab setup (possibly associated with the 37-inch cyclotron) Cooksey 30-10, April 1, 1937. [Photographer: Donald Cooksey]

The 37-inch cyclotron accelerated deuterons to 8 MeV and alpha particles to 16 MeV. It was also used to create radio isotopes and the first artificial element, technetium. This cyclotron was used in one of the first attempts to treat cancer. Cooksey label: Cancer Room, Old Lab, with Paul Aebersold. Cooksey 1-7, September 20,1938. [Photographer: Donald Cooksey]
