Caption: The LIL linear accelerators (or "linacs") at CERN, the European particle physics laboratory outside Geneva. LIL stands for LEP Injector Linacs; it will provide the initial acceleration of electrons & positrons for the LEP (Large Electron-Positron) collider. Scheduled to start work in 1989, LEP is an underground ring with a circumference of 27 km. It will be the largest scientific instrument ever built when completed. Electrons & positrons will be accelerated to 600 MeV in LIL, then fed into the Proton Synchrotron & Super-Proton- Synchrotron (PS & SPS) rings before finally being injected into LEP at an energy of 20 GeV. LEP will accelerate them up to 100 GeV per beam.
