This paper surveys current and planned research and development at SLAC on superconducting linear accelerators 0 Ultimately, the goal is to convert the present machine to a two-mile 100 GeV superconducting linac. The technological problems which stand in the way of this achievement are being attacked on two fronts: on the one hand, a better understanding of(More)
The results derived in Ref. 2 have been used to calculate a sample set of parameters1 for a superconducting version of the two-mile SLAC accelerator. These calculations have been carried out in order to provide a basis for further technical discussions. Beam Energy The energy goal of 100 GeV (10 MeV/ft.) has been chosen since this energy is sufficiently(More)
The functional relationships among SLAC, Stanford University, the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, and the various advisory and coordinating committees were discussed in Section 1-4. It is the purpose of this section to describe the internal organization and functioning of SLAC in somewhat more detail. The chief executive officer for SLAC is the project(More)
The purpose of this paper is to describe recent developments at SLAC which have contributed to improvements in beam operation. The paper will be divided into two parts. The first will summarize overall beam performance and operational efficiency in delivering beams to various experiments. The second will be devoted to specific developments such as the(More)
