The synchrotron was modified to increase the operating energy from 1.3 Gev to a design energy of 2.2 Gev. At the same time, a proposal was generated for the design and construction of a 10 Gev electron synchrotron. The modification of the 1.3 Gev synchrotron was conceived in July, 1962, and the major design features were completed by April 1963. Construction progressed during the last half of 1963, and on January 20, 1964, the 1.3 Gev machine was turned off and assembly and modification was begun. A beam was first obtained in the modified machine on April 28, 1964, just a little over three months after tear-down and assembly was begun. The next month was used in making final modifications and adjustments.
