Caption: A superconducting magnet ready for installation in the Tevatron accelerator at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory near Chicago, in 1980. The quadrupole magnet contains coils of niobium- titanium alloy which is superconducting when kept at about -450 degrees F (4. 6 degrees K). Superconducting magnets enable the Tevatron, which began accelerating particles in 1983, to provide a magnetic field of 45 kilogauss, & this in turn enables beams of protons & antiprotons in the Tevatron to be accelerated to an energy of about 1000 GeV (1 TeV). Quadrupole magnets are used to focus the particle beams.
