Particle interaction at CERN Featured 10 Sep 1987 Print

Particle interaction at CERN

Special effects "zoom" photograph of a particle interaction in the UA1 detector at CERN, the particle physics laboratory outside Geneva. The UA1 detector, which discovered the W & Z particles in 1983, records the collisions of protons & anti- protons accelerated to very high energy in CERN's SPS collider. When a proton & antiproton collide, they annihilate into pure energy which rematerial- ises as a large number of new particles that spray out in all directions. The photograph symbolises the explosive appearance of such interactions. The detector itself is outlined in red
