Description

  • Content Description: The status of experiments on electron scattering, photoproduction of mesons, wide-angle muon pair production, photoproduction of pairs with large momentum transfers, photoproduction of sigma particles, pion production in peripheral processes, wide-angle electron pair production, and the Compton effect at 1 to 3 Bev is summarized. The status of shielding studies, spark chamber studies of photoproduction, and bubble chamber investigations are also included. Magnets, targets, ejection-type vacuum chambers, photon-beam drift tubes and collimators, detectors, cables, cryogenic cooling equipment, radiation detectors, and construction of supplementary shielding walls were involved in design efforts and procurement of equipment and facilities. Modifications and improvements at the accelerator proper were made on the magnet power supply, the r-f system, the Drivac high-vacuum pumps and other components and facilities. Operation at energies up to 6.2 Bev and with intensities up to 30% of design intensity (6 x 10/ sup 12/ electrons/sec) was achieved. Data of a technical nature are very limited. (D.C.W.)
