Argon ions were recently accelerated to 11.7 GeV at the Princeton Particle Accelerator. This represents a two-fold increase in the mass over particles previously accelerated to relativistic energies. The report describes how a stack of cellulose nitrate track detectors was used to confirm the successful acceleration with the unambiguous identification of 79 argon tracks within a clearly defined 1 14-inch-beam spot.
