MURA), a federation of 15 universities that lasted from 1953 to 1967, was responsible for the invention of fixed field alternating gradient accelerators, as well as important contributions to accelerator orbit theory, radio frequency acceleration techniques, colliding beams technology, orbit instabilities, computation methods, and designs of accelerator magnets and linear accelerator cavities.
Four types of magnetic measurement tools were used in this study: vibrating-sample magnetometer (VSM) (8,9), alternating gradient force magnetometer (AGM) (10-12), superconducting quantum-interference-device (SQUID) magnetometer (13), and inductive-field (B-H) looper (14).
In the new hypernuclei experiment, a team of 50 scientists from six countries used a Brookhaven accelerator known as the Alternating Gradient Synchrotron to direct the world's most intense proton beam at a piece of tungsten.
