Goodbye, old friend

The accelerating column from the Cockcroft-Walton generator was removed several years ago to make way for the RFQ system, now used as one of the first stages of acceleration. The column has been sitting in the Linac Gallery since. It finally became time to move the column out of the way, which we did on Feb. 14. Unfortunately we were not able to find a new home for it on site. accelerator Photo: Dan Bollinger
