The synchrotron construction and some experimental results from the synchrotron are described. A decrease of the pressure in the vacuum chambers from 1 × 10-5 Torr upto 3 × 10-6 Torr does not change the synchrotron intensity. As the pressure increases upto 8 × 10-5 Torr, the intensity becomes 8 times less and the vertical beam size increases. The electrons are accelerated by means of two cavities at a mean frequency of 36.46 MHz. It was established that the synchrotron intensity changes largely, if one cavity is distuned for + 50 kHz from the resonance value. According to theory, the influence of the quantum character of the synchrotron radiation upon betatron oscillations, was observed, when the energy of the electrons is above 630 MeV.
