1973: A Synchrocyclotron rotary condenser ⠀
This photo shows the interior view of the housing of the Synchrocyclotron’s rotary capacitor, installed in early ’70s to help the machine provide higher-intensity proton beam to its experiments.⠀
The Synchrocyclotron, which came into operation in 1957, was CERN’s first accelerator. It provided beams for CERN’s first experiments in particle and nuclear physics. In 1964, this machine started to concentrate on nuclear physics alone, leaving particle physics to the newer and more powerful Proton Synchrotron. ...
