Initial operation of ORIC with tandem injection

Coupled operation of the 25 MV tandem and ORIC was achieved on January 27, 1981. The initial beam was 324 MeV /sup 16/O/sup 8 +/ followed shortly by oxygen at 400 MeV-the maximum design energy. Following additional installation and testing of the tandem, coupled operation for a nuclear physics experiment began in August. Performance of the system was in close agreement with that predicted from calculations.
