The progress of the Bevatron, giant atom-smasher, at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

The progress of the Bevatron, giant atom-smasher built with Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) funds at the University of California Radiation Laboratory, showing technician at work on aperture of magnet.  This is the aperture of vacuum chamber through which particles travel.  Technician is attaching pole face windings.  At left is crawl space, which gives experimenters access to the accelerating chamber without taking whole magnet apart.  Ports in crawl space permit insertion of experimental equipment into chamber.
