Particle Accumulator Ring

Beam from the linac is next injected into the particle accumulator ring (PAR), which compresses the long pulse of 10-15-nanosecond electrons down to less than 1 nanosecond, and cleans the electron bunch to ensure that stray electrons are driven outside the bunch. The beam is then extracted and delivered to the booster synchrotron.
