Abstract

Because of their high centre-of-mass energies, the proton-antiproton colliders at CERN and FNAL offer very large cross-sections for producing pairs of charm and bottom particles. At the CERN \( p\bar p \) Collider (\( \sqrt s \ \) = 630 GeV) the predicted cross-sections1 are σ(\( b\bar b \)) ≈ 100 µb and σ(\( b\bar b \)) ≈10 µb. The integrated luminosity delivered to UA1 is ~ 1 pb−1, so ~ 108 \( c\bar c \) and ~ 107 \( b\bar b \) pairs must have already been produced. The Antiproton Collector (ACOL) ring at CERN will increase the luminosity of the CERN Collider by about a factor of 20.
