    Default within

    Within a few years of inventing the cyclotron, Lawrence and his colleagues were using these high-energy particles for another purpose.

    Does it mean that after Lawerence invented the cyclotron......
    or he used it while he was still inventing

    thanks

    He began using it after he invented it, but no more than a few years after.

    Additionally,

    First, Lawrence invents the cyclotron. Then, at some time "within" the following short span of time (two to three years after inventing the cyclotron), Lawrence and his colleagues start using high-energy particles for another purposes.
