Caption: View of the twin rings of the Antiproton Collector or ACOL (left) & the Antiproton Accumulator or AA (right) at CERN, the European particle physics laboratory near Geneva. The function of both rings is to store & accumulate antiprotons before they are injected into CERN's proton-antiproton collider, the Super- Proton-Synchrotron (SPS). The AA was built first & started work in 1981. ACOL was added in 1987, & increased CERN's antiproton levels tenfold. The two rings consists primarily of large magnets (red & blue) to bend the antiprotons on their circular course & to focus them into a dense bunch.
