An electron analogue accelerator 45 feet in diameter is being constructed to test a variety of orbital properties of a strong-focusing synchrotron system. High-voltage sawtooth wave generators will supply the electrostatic bending and correcting lenses. A feed-back type radio frequency control and power amplifier supply a simple low-Q ferrite accelerating cavity. The rf control is designed to accommodate the phase stability transition encountered in strong-focusing synchrotrons. Auxiliary electronic systems will detect, observe, and time the circulating electron beam.
