The 16 million electron volt deuteron beam of the 60-inch cyclotron at the University of California Lawrence Radiation Laboratory

The 16 million electron volt deuteron beam of the 60-inch cyclotron at the University of California Lawrence Radiation Laboratory.  The beam extends five fee in the air, emerging from the port at right.  The photograph was taken soon after the cyclotron began operating in June, 1939 (this cyclotron was dismantled in 1962). In 1939 this was the highest energy accelerator beam in the world, and the intensity of the beam was many times greater than any other accelerator.
