Beam Switchyard Extractor

Beam Switchyard Extractor

It is time to choose where an electron will go. By using a device similar to an acceleration cavity, but operated sideways, a group of electrons can be kicked a little bit to the right, a little bit to the left, or not at all. As they travel further down the tunnel, they will get further and further apart.
