Operation Terminology


The Accumulator is a storage ring in the Antiproton Source. Successive pulses of antiprotons are collected here to create an antiproton beam of reasonable intensity for colliding beams physics. The Accumulator is designed to accept a pulse of antiprotons from the Debuncher every few seconds.
