Abstract: The 10MV ANTARES Tandem accelerator at ANSTO has now been in Australia for 20 years. It arrived from Rutgers University at the Sydney container terminal on 12 September 1089 and was brought to Lucas Heights and loaded, by two cranes, onto four stanchions already in place on a concrete slab on 14 September 1989. The building was then completed around the accelerator. The tank on ANTARES was part of the FN1, the first FN series accelerator built by High Voltage Engineering in the mid 1960s. The accelerator and several beamlines were purchased from Rutgers for the meagre sum of US$250,000. Since September 1989, the accelerator has been completely revamped and brought into the 21st century with 3 ion sources, 3 state of the art accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) beamlines, a heavy ion recoil time of flight (RToF) beamline and a world class high energy heavy ion microprobe. The current replacement value of the accelerator is over $12M. This talk will review the technical and scientific achievements over the past 20 tears, current programs and future directions of this key piece of ANSTO capital equipment and acknowledge many of its past users and contributors. © 2009 AINSE
