A proton synchrotron for 300 GEV

Sands, Matthew


Until 1959 it was stated, and was generally accepted, that the achievement by artificial acceleration of very high interaction energies in the center-of-momentum framr of two nucleons would be practical in the immediatr future only with colliding-beam accelerator systems. Proposals were advanced for colliding-beam accelerators which would provide intensities of protons at about 10 Gev sufficient to obtain significant rates of proton-proton interactions. (Center-of-momentum energies of about 20 Gev.) Detailed consideration of colliding-beam devices at thr MURA laboratories has shown that these devices are indeed feasible. It is, however, clear that they will be both complex and costly.
