GENEVA-In Europe a new chapter in physics research is being opened as three atomic accelerators, each with capabilities beyond those of any in existence, move toward completion. One of them. UNILAC. already operating near Darmstadt. West Germany, and almost up to full power, is capable of ac- clerating the heaviest atoms in nature, those of uranium, and smashing them into other heavy atoms. Recently two of last year's winners of the Nobel Prize in physics. Dr. Aage Bohr and Dr. Ben Mottelson, termed the startup of this machine a turning point sure to lead to many discoveries relating to atomic nuclei. Bohr, son of Niels Bohr, the physicist, said the Darmstadt machine meant the transfer from the United States to Europe of leadership in this field. * » * AT THE SAME TIME a machine is being built in Hamburg, West Germany, to slam electrons and their twins of opposite electric charge (positronsI into one another headon at unprecedented energies. The main ring of the machine, known as PETRA, is one and a third miles in circumference. The third new machine, called the Super Proton Synchrotron or SPS. is rearing completion at CERN. the European nuclear research center here. The SPS. which will have cost $600 m i l l i o n , lies within a circular tunnel four miles long that spans the Swiss-French border. It was dug by a "mole" akin to those used in mining coal. The SPS is somewhat similar to the giant machine at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia. 111. As with the Fermilab machine its original design energy--300 billion electron volts- has been raised to 400 billion. Fermilab has recently climbed to 500 billion. Physicists here say the SPS will be able to conduct some forms of research--for example w i t h its intense beam of neu- trions--more effectively than Fermilab can. Wheareas Fermilab. now the world's largest accelerator, was built from scratch, the SPS will be fed by a smaller accelerator already here. The same applies to PETRA. or Position Timvs .SVrrirc Electron Tandem Ring A c c e l e r a t o r , which is being built around Germany's existing machine for electron and positron acceleration, known as DESY. and its accompanying ring for storing such particles. D O R I S ( b o t h are German acronyms i. It was the DESY-DOH1S combination that, late in 1974. was able within days to confirm the discovery at Stanford Univ- ersity and at the Brookliaven National La- dtement among theorists, lending plausi- boraiory on Long Island.
