Description

On February 23, 1984, 2 ..mu..A of polarized H/sup -/ was accelerated through the linac to 200 MeV with a polarization of 65%. 1 ..mu..A was injected into the AGS and acceleration attempts began. Several short tests were made until June 1984 when full time effort began. By June 26, the AGS polarized beam reached 13.8 GeV/c to eclipse the previous world's high energy of 12.75 GeV/c set at the Argonne ZGS some six years earlier. The polarized beam energy was raised to 16.5 GeV/c at which energy the decision was made to commence high energy physics running. By this ... continued below

The polarized beam energy was raised to 16.5 GeV/c at which energy the decision was made to commence high energy physics running. By this time the accelerated beam intensity exceeded 10/sup 10/ protons per pulse with about 40% polarization. The beam was extracted and two experiments began taking data.
