The Variable Energy Cyclotron Centre (VECC) is a research and development unit of the Indian Department of Atomic Energy. The VECC, located in Kolkata, India, performs research in basic and applied nuclear sciences and development of latest accelerators. It has a collaboration with European Organization for Nuclear Research.The Centre houses a 224 cm cyclotron is the first of its kind in India which has been operational since 16 June 1977.It provides proton, deuteron, alpha particle and heavy ion beams of various energies to other institutions.The Centre consists of Superconducting Cyclotron Building, Cryogenic Plant Building, Regional Radiation Medicine Centre and Low Back Counting Laboratory which are built and commissioned by Directorate of Construction Services and Estate Management.
The Variable Energy Cyclotron Centre (VECC), one of the premier nuclear science and accelerator technology centres of India is a Constituent Institutes (CI) of Homi Bhabha National Institute (HBNI), Mumbai.. A wide spectrum of research programmes on Accelerator Physics, Experimental and Theoretical Nuclear Physics, Physics with Rare Ion Beams & Nuclear Astrophysics, Hadronic Physics, Quark Gluon Plasma Physics, Material Science, Radio Chemistry, Nuclear Medicine, Computer Science & Engineering, Electronics etc are carried out at the Centre. VECC is also part of the International Collaboration at ultra-relativistic heavy ion collisions in Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at Brookhaven National Laboratory & Large Hadron Collider at CERN, Geneva. The Centre also conducts one year pre-doctoral orientation course in physics for HBNI students.
The following is the list of proceedings by scholars from Variable Energy Cyclotron Centre that are published in OMICS International journals and conferences.
