Zero Gradient Synchrotron 2
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: Governor Kerner; Lee C. Teng, Particle Accelerator division director; and, Roger H. Hildebrand, associate laboratory director for High Energy Physics. Dr. Teng and Dr. Hildebrand are explaining the operation of the ZGS. Behind them is a portion of the 4,800-ton magnet ring that guides protons around the ZGS as they are accelerated.
