Therefore, most of the electromagnetic energy contained in the field is still present after the particles have passed. This is then dissipated in the “terminating resistor” shown in Fig. 7. It cannot be conserved until the next bunch arrives; the power dissipation in the accelerating structure would be far too high for this. As a result, these machines consume far more power The Long-Term Future of Particle Accelerators 39 than is represented by the actual beam power. Increasing the gradient will aggravate this problem.

He was the owner of a large agricultural estate in the state of Virginia and managed it with close attention to details.
