  • Colleagues at the Paul Scherrer Institute are developing a way to achieve higher doses and shorter treatment times for cancer patients undergoing proton therapy. Using momentum cooling replaces the slit found in conventional proton therapy energy selection systems with a wedge that converts the spread of energies to a lower energy, keeping lower energies low while shifting higher energies to lower ones.
