On Wednesday, March 26, the Accelerator Division installed the Booster’s 10th cavity. This marks the halfway point in the upgrade process. The Booster operates using 19 radio-frequency cavities.
The Accelerator Division, along with members of the Technical Division, are refurbishing the cavities to be able to deliver higher-power proton beams for Fermilab’s neutrino experiments.
