New type atom smasher was constructed largely at University of California, Los Angeles

Heart of the spiral ridge cyclotron is the pinwheel, consisting of four spiral shims (dark parts), which allow continuous acceleration of protons. Light part is the copper lining. The new type atom smasher was constructed largely at UCLA, and designed by UCLA physics professors J.R. Richardson, Byron T. Wright, and Kenneth R.
