LINAC 1 was the first particle injection system used within a proton particle beam-accelerator within CERN. Designed during the 1950s the LINAC was first active in 1958-59. Starting in 1964 the LINAC was used to accelerate deuterons continuing to be used for this during the 1970s.[1][2][3] LINAC1 ceased to be used in experiments in 1992.[4]

The LINAC is an additional accelerator utilized in order to provide energy that particles absorb resulting in these having a motion closer to c.[5]
