Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 134)


A preview of the two-photon physics that can be expected to result from the initial PEP program is presented. The experimental detectors are discussed with emphasis placed on their capabilities and limitations to do studies of gamma-gamma interactions.
