Paul Farrell, Ph.D. Physics, President
Dr. Farrell co-founded Brookhaven Technology Group, Inc. (BTG) in 1987 and currently serves as president. His professional work with accelerators includes two patents; one on a method of improving the lifetime of tritium targets used for neutron cancer therapy, and another that describes a unique method of stabilizing the voltage of dc accelerators during pulsed operation, a method that improves the beam quality of free electron laser systems.
Dr. Farrell received a B.S. in Physics from The University of Chicago and a Ph.D. in Nuclear Physics from the University of Pittsburg.
