Magnetism in accelerator-based science.

At iThemba LABS, which stands for Laboratory for Accelerator-Based Sciences, we make small things go very
fast using strong magnetic fields. The research done at iThemba LABS uses beams of charged particles to study
the origin of matter, but also to understand the interaction between radiation (energy as particles or waves) and
biological systems. Apart from research activities, we also produce nuclear medicine such as radiopharmaceuticals
to diagnose and treat cancer.
