Abstract:

The article discusses the Serpukhov proton synchrotron with an energy of 70 GeV and investigations made with it. The maximum intensity obtained on the accelerator is 1.5 x 10 to the power of 12 protons per cycle. Flows of pi-mesons reach 5,000,000 and antiprotons 100,000 particles per day. Flows of antideuterons comprise tens of thousands per day. Development of the accelerator of the Institute of High-Energy Physics facilitated the expansion of the collaboration of scientists of different institutes of the USSR and also international collaboration in the field of high-energy physics. Used in the experiment were three dimensional gas targets containing deuterium under a pressure of 70 atm at the temperature of liquid nitrogen and also a liquid hydrogen target with a volume of 200 liters.
