The performance of the Bevalac is reported. The Bevalac uses the LBL SuperHILAC as the heavy ion injector to the Bevatron. Ion species up to 40A have been accelerated to energies of 1.9 GeV/A at modest intensity. Neon has been accelerated to 2.1 GeV/A at an intensity of 4·1010 particles per pulse. The modifications to the SuperHILAC and Bevatron are briefly reviewed and the computer control system is described. Results of the first phase of operation and plans for further improvements are… Expand
