Caption: Staff from the Brookhaven National Laboratory's Superconducting Magnet Division examine a ''snake'' magnet used at the Alternating Gradient Synchrotron. Snake magnets are used to flip the spin of the protons as they travel around an accelerator to eliminate depolarization, called %u201Cresonances,%u201D which occur during acceleration.
