Argonne National Laboratory has made progress with its booster development project to increase the circulating intensity in the 12‐GeV Zero Gradient Synchrotron. In a series of tests last spring, experimenters successfully injected negative hydrogen ions (H) from the 50‐MeV linac into the booster synchrotron—the former 2‐GeV electron accelerator acquired from Cornell University in 1969. The ions were then stripped of electrons, leaving a proton beam that was coasted (not accelerated) around the booster ring.
