Description: 

Inside the tunnel of the Alternating Gradient synchrotron (AGS) at the conjunction of the linear accelerator (Linac) with the main magnet enclosure. The proton beam emerges from the Linac, which is located behind the two unidentified men (left rear) and travels along the 4-inch pipe to the lower right, passing through a series of focusing lenses and steering magnets into the orbit of the synchrotron magnet ring, part of which can be seen on the right. The pipe extending across the aisle to the left is the exit pipe from an analyzer magnet which bends the proton beam through 25 degree in order to allow for determination of the energy spread of the protons.
