The Status of the Tevatron
Fermilab’s 400 GeV accelerator began its life in 1972 at the new laboratory near Chicago, Illinois. By 1973, a small R&D effort began to study superconducting accelerator magnets. This was based on a very substantial effort that had been underway in many laboratories including Brookhaven, Argonne and Rutherford Lab. By 1978, the Laboratory had achieved enough success to propose to build, as an R&D project, a superconducting ring in the same tunnel as the 400 GeV machine.
