Jefferson Lab. Aerial view of the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility, or Jefferson Lab. Key areas are highlighted by colour. Electrons are produced in the injector building (magenta, left) and fed into the underground, racetrack-shaped accelerator ring (yellow). The electrons are accelerated in the linear portion of the track (long red buildings) and turned through the arcs at each end by powerful magnets (small red buildings). After up to five circuits, the electrons leave the ring, pass through a counting house (blue) and go to experiments in the three 'Halls' (green). Jefferson Lab is at Newport News, Virginia, USA.
