Status and First Results from the UA2 Experiment

  • P. Jenni

Abstract

The UA2 detector1 was recently installed at the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) \(p\bar p\) Collider. The successful operation of the SPS \(p\bar p\) Collider2 allows the study of hadron interactions at a center of mass energy \(sqrt s\) = 540 GeV, one order of magnitude higher than previously available. The data presented here were recorded with the UA2 detector during the first \(p\bar p\) period in November-December 1981.
