VEPP-5 linear accelerator. Scientific centre employees working at the linear particle accelerator of the VEPP-5 injection complex at the Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics in Novosibirsk, Russia. A linear particle accelerator (linac) is a device that greatly increases the kinetic energy of a beam of charged subatomic particles or ions, by subjecting them to a series of oscillating electric potentials along a linear beamline. The VEPP-5 Injection Complex is designed to supply electron and positron beams for high-energy particle physics research.
