In science:

The PEP II injection bunch is extracted from the linac at the 9.5 GeV point in sector 10 where it is deflected into the NIT bypass line by a 30 Hz pulsed magnet. The scavenger bunch for positron production is accelerated up to sector 19 to approximately 30 GeV.
Parameters for a 30 GeV Undulator Test Facility in the FFTB/LCLS
Higher energies, up to 50 GeV are also available in the linac at the cost of powering more of the linac accelerating sections. The additional acceleration in sectors 20 through 30 has no effect on the PEP II injection.
