sĭngkrō-sīklə-trŏn, sĭn-
A cyclotron that modulates the frequency of the electric fields that accelerate a particle, thereby synchronizing the accelerating forces with the particle as its relativistic mass increases with velocity.

A modified cyclotron in which the frequency of the accelerating voltage is modulated to take into account the increase in the relativistic mass of the particle as it reaches high energies.

0
A type of cyclotron that modulates the frequency of the electric fields that accelerate the particles, thereby keeping the accelerating forces synchronized with the particle as its mass increases with velocity due to the effects of relativity, and providing greater energies for the accelerated particles than an unsynchronized cyclotron.

A particle accelerator like a cyclotron, but which operates at variable frequency to account for the particles gaining energy, allowing for greater energies to be achieved.
