Industrial Area
Five buildings, called the industrial area, are devoted to the design, testing, fabrication and repair of magnets and other accelerator components. Physicists use magnets to steer particles through beam pipes, bending their paths to follow ring-shaped accelerator tunnels. The research conducted here and at other laboratories has advanced the use of accelerators in medical applications.
