The SLD Detector and the Polarization Project at SLC

  • Traudl Hansl-Kozanecka
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 233)


The SLD is the second generation detector for the SLAC Linear Collider (SLC). A short review of the detector and its status is given. The availability of longitudinally polarized beams will be a unique opportunity at SLC. The polarization project and its status is described.
