Spreading the positron energy around

positron wheel

The rotating positron target sits in a protective steel bunker.  A dipole magnet (rear) creates a one-tesla magnetic field to help with tests related to eddy currents.  The two light grey boxes in the foreground measure the wheel rim’s temperature.  Image courtesy of Ian Bailey.
