Excerpt: The history of Los Alamos is intimately linked to machines. Machines of all types- from reactors to computers to lasers- have been indispensable in advancing scientific knowledge at the Laboratory. Among all of those machines, accelerators occupy a special position. During World War II accelerators provided vital information to scientists designing the first nuclear weapons, and after the war some of those machines were used as tools of basic scientific research. Then, in the early 1970s, a half mile- long accelerator called LAMPF (formally named the Clinton P. Anderson Meson Physics Facility) was completed after a decade of planning and construction. Over the years LAMPF has been the workhorse for many Laboratory programs, including programs in nuclear physics, weapons research, neutron scattering, radioisotope production, and cancer therapy. Accelerators for more specialized purposes have also been developed or improved by Los Alamos scientists.
