Abstract

A liquid hydrogen target for high energy physics experiment, Crystal Ball Spectrometer, was recently built and operated at the Alternating Gradient Synchrotron (AGS) particle accelerator at the Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL). The system safety design, operation, and control of the target was analyzed and evaluated during its two-month beam-taking experiment. This paper reports on this cryogenic project.
