Recent upgrading projects have extended the mass range of particles that can be accelerated at the Bevalac to include any element of the periodic table to energies above 1 billion electron volts per atomic mass unit. This capability was verified on 11 May 1982 with the production of a uranium beam at 147.7 million electron volts per atomic mass unit.
