Short for linear accelerator.
- Induction linacs, linear accelerators that induce an electromotive force on ions by rapidly changing the strength of a magnetic field inside a vacuum cavity, have proven capable of producing the necessary current.
- The front-end team led by Gough is responsible for delivering a beam of 2.5 million electron-volt negative hydrogen ions to a half-kilometer-long linac to be built by Los Alamos National Laboratory.
- The goal is to accelerate a beam of negative hydrogen ions to 2.5 million electron volts and deliver it to the linac.
