II: Buildings and Grounds
Illinois Governor Otto G. Kerner was one of the first to visit the Zero Gradient Synchrotron (ZGS) at Argonne National Laboratory after its full operating capacity of 12.5 billion electron volts was reached. From left: Lee C. Teng, Particle Accelerator division director, Governor Kerner, and Roger Hildebrand, associate laboratory director for High Energy Physics. Dr. Teng and Dr. Hildebrand are showing the governor the 110-foot linear accelerator (linac) that fires protons at 50 million electron volts into the magnet ring of the ZGS where these are further accelerated to 12.5 BeV.
