Caption: A section of the Linac III particle accelerator at DESY, the German particle physics laboratory in Hamburg. "Linac" is short for linear accelerator. The 32-metre long machine, constructed during 1987-1989, produces & accelerates hydrogen ions which will eventually supply the protons for use in HERA, the giant new DESY accelerator which will collide protons with electrons. Linac III consists of a source which provides ions with an energy of 18 keV; they are then accelerated down the linac to 50 MeV before being injected into the DESY III proton synchrotron. From DESY III they move onto the PETRA machine, before finally being injected into HERA.
