Caption courtesy D. Allan Bromley: "Inside the [tandem Van de Graaff] ESTU [Extended Stretched TransUranium] accelerator [at Yale University's Wright Nuclear Structure Laboratory]. This shows the electrostatic column with its lateral and vertical support columns prior to the installation of the so-called portico electrodes that stabilized the field in the insulating gas surrounding the column. The targets painted on the inside of the tank wall are used in locating sparks when they occur. In the middle background and foreground from the left are: Joseph Cimino, Alfred Jeddry, and Allan Bromley."
