TEHRAN: Vice President and Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Mohammad Eslami announced that the Iranian scientists have domestically manufactured electron accelerators.
“A while ago I wrote about the important role of electron accelerators in this Instagram page and pointed to inspiring research and activities of nuclear scientists in this field,” Eslami wrote on his Instagram page.
“I am very happy that the US monopoly on production of electron accelerators was broken by the Iranian scientists and the brave Iranian youth once again brought another honor for the dear Iran,” he added.
