Booster Accelerator

The Booster Accelerator

The Fermilab Booster is a synchrotron accelerator with a circumference of 474 meters. Beam is injected into the Booster from the 400 MeV transport line which carries the 400 MeV beam output from the Linac accelerator. The Booster accelerates a proton beam from 400 MeV to 8 GeV in less than 67 milliseconds for the Main Injector accelerator. Booster provides beam for the experimental areas at Fermilab.
