CERN Hadron LINACs
||This article needs attention from an expert on the subject. (January 2012)|
LINAC 1 was designed and built during the 1950s to inject 50 MeV protons into the PS. The first beams were accelerated in 1958, and the accelerator was fully operational by 1959. From 1964 until its eventual decommissioning, the LINAC was used to accelerate light ions, such as deuterons, alpha particles, oxygen ions and sulphur ions. LINAC 1 ceased to be used in experiments in 1992.
LINAC 2 replaced LINAC 1 as CERN's primary source of proton beams in 1978. It kept the same beam energy, but allowed for more intense beams. It injects into the PSB rather than directly into the PS.
