The D0 Detector for the Fermilab Collider and the Future Physics Program at CESR

  • Paolo Franzini


By late ’86 the Fermilab superconducting ring is expected to be operating as a proton-antiproton collider, sometimes known as TEV I, at a c.m. energy \(\sqrt s = 2\) TeV, with a luminosity of 1030 cm-2s-1. Concurrently a machine improvement program is under way at the CESR e+e- collider at Cornell, with the aim to raise the collider luminosity up to values of ~ 5 pb-1 day-1. Two new detectors have been designed to take advantage of the promises of the new colliders in several fields of particle physics: the ‘DO’ detector at Fermilab and the ‘CLEO II’ detector at CESR. The design principles of the two detectors and some examples of the physics which they can address are presented.
