Title: Series 7: Photographs - Birmingham proton synchrotron
Author: Central Office of Information
Abstract: Under the supervision of Professor Marcus Olipahnt, F.R.S., members of the Physics Department of the University of Birmingham are constructing what will be one of the largest proton synchrotrons in the world. It will be used for accelerating protons to an energy of 1,300,000,000 electron-volts for use as projectiles in the study of nuclear strucure.
