The UK is investing £2M to kick-start research on next-generation radiotherapy treatments for cancer through the establishment of the Ion Therapy Research Facility (ITRF). A major project at the ITRF, the Laser hybrid Accelerator for Radiobiology Applications (LhARA), will use laser sources to create intense proton and ion beams which it will steer to their target with the help of plasma lenses. Developing these new technologies will mean that LhARA can provide more types of ions with greater control over how they are used for treatment than is possible with current radiotherapy facilities, and do this at a lower cost.
