The Fermilab Accelerator Division Main Injector department is responsible for the Main Injector and Recycler accelerators as well as the 8 Gev injection line, and P1/P2 extraction lines. Our current goals include:

  • Establish slip stacking in the Recycler and deliver 700 KW of beam power to the NuMI target
  • Provide beam to Switchyard Experiments
  • Provide beam with the appropriate time structure to the Muon Campus
  • Minimize and control beam losses in the MI tunnel

New Record!

The Main Injector reached a record beam power average of 615.3 kW for one hour on April 14, 2016. See all Accelerator Division records here.
