HERA: Physics, Machine and Experiments

  • Günter Wolf
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 164)


With HERA ep collisions at a c.m. energy of 314 GeV and Q max 2 = 105 GeV2 will become possible. The physics opportunities, the design and status of the machine and the planned detectors are discussed.


Energy Resolution Neutral Current Drift Chamber Liquid Argon ZEUS Collaboration
