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…

The accelerating complex for the production of the multicharged ion beams up to uranium with a final energy of 300 MeV/amu is described. It is supposed to use a Wideroe type accelerator at the first

Digital Controlled Frequency for Synchrotron Acceleration

The ability of synchrotrons to accelerate particles with different e/m0 values is dependent upon being able to control its accelerating-voltage frequency as a function of the actual guide field

The Bevalac -- An Economical Facility for Very Energetic Heavy Particle Research

An economical means for the production of high energy, high intensity beams of a variety of heavy-ions is to utilize the existing LBL SuperHilac as an injector for the existing LBL Bevatron. Particle

The Bevalac Beam Tranport System

The Bevalac consists of, in part, a 200 meter long transfer line between the SuperHILAC and the Bevatron, which are at differing elevation. Unique features in the construction of the transfer line

The Bevatron Cryopump

A cryogenic vacuum pump, designed to lower the base pressure from 2 × 10-6 Torr to 3 × 10-7 Torr was installed in the Bevatron in February 1972. The ~ 11,000 ft3 vacuum volume contains > 100,000 ft2

A Multi-Wire Chamber System for Heavy Ion Beam Monitoring at the Bevalac

Horizontal and vertical integrated beam-current profiles are generated by a system of multi-wire chambers (32 wires/profile) operating in either the ionization or proportional mode. Sixteen distinct

Spill Control and Intensity Maonitoring for the Bevatron-Bevalac External Particle Beams

Time-intensity modulation in beam spill can be of primary concern in some experiments. The major source of this beam structure is from main-guide field-magnet power supply ripple. If the time
