View looking down the 110-foot linear accelerator (linac) at Argonne National Laboratory's Zero Gradient Synchrotron. The resonant cavity of the linac is approximately 37 inches in diameter. At the center of the cavity are 124 hollow copper drift tubes, placed end to end. Protons are accelerated as they pass from tube to tube. Tuning balls are mounted inside the cavity at the upper left.
