Spark chamber pattern Spark chamber pattern as it appears on a photographic emulsion. Spark chambers are particle detectors in use from the 1940s to the late 1950s. They photograph tracks of sparks triggered by the passage of particles through the detector. (M991, SLAC slide 450)
Quadrupole magnets Quadrupole magnets in the Positron Electron Project (PEP), a 2.2 km circumference storage ring at SLAC. A quadrupole is a four pole magnet used to focus beams. PEP was  reconfigured  1994-1997 to accommodate the B-factory experiment. (SLAC slide 793)
Gandalf the Grey Gandalf the Grey is the creation of SLAC Chief Engineer (1960-1979) and sometime cartoonist Bob Gould. (91-038)
"The accelerators at SLAC and elsewhere are perhaps the most complex instruments ever built. As examples of the Forefront of technology, these machines operate in ways that are very largely accessible to Rational Analysis. Thus the occasions are rather infrequent when a problem of some sort has to be referred to a practitioner of the more Ancient Arts, such as the personage shown [here], who is SLAC Special Consultant Gandalf the Grey."SLAC Beam Line, Volume 9, Numbers 7 & 8, July-August 1978, p.5
