Caption: The Bevatron proton synchrotron at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, in California, began accelerating protons in 1954, up to an energy of 6 GeV. A Cockroft-Walton generator (the cubic structure at right) fed protons down the linear accelerator or "linac" (the tube at centre) for injection into the main magnet ring at 10 MeV. The Bevatron is still operational, although it is now used in a different manner, to accelerate heavy ions rather than protons.
