Industrial Experience on the Hera Accelerator at DESY
HERA is a unique new storage ring facility under construction at DESY, Hamburg. A 4-mile circular tunnel houses a 1 TeV-proton-storage ring, which will be, after completion for a number of years the world’s highest energy accelerator. In the same tunnel is a 35 GeV electron storage ring, which, after the European LEP-machine, will be the highest energy electron storage ring in the world. The counter- rotating proton and electron beams can be made to collide in four large underground halls. The project was authorized in April 1984. The electron ring of HERA started operation in August 1988. First colliding beam experiments with protons and electrons are to start in 1990.
