Future Accelerators

  • Klaus Winter
Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 12)


What will future accelerators, proposed or at present under construction be able to teach us about weak interactions? Three accelerators are briefly described: the pp collider at CERN; the large e+e collider project LEP; and the electron-proton collider project HERA at DESY. The first two aim at discovering the vector bosons of the weak interaction and at studying their properties; LEP can be used to search for the Higgs meson and to study the fermion spectrum. HERA aims at a study of structure and a search for the substructure of ordinary matter; it is sensitive to effects due to the exchange of heavier vector bosons with masses up to 300 GeV.
