Über dieses Buch

This second volume of the handbook series deals with detectors, large experimental facilities and data handling, both for accelerator and non-accelerator based experiments. It also covers applications in medicine and life sciences.

A joint CERN-Springer initiative, the “Particle Physics Reference Library” provides revised and updated contributions based on previously published material in the well-known Landolt-Boernstein series on particle physics, accelerators and detectors (volumes 21A,B1,B2,C), which took stock of the field approximately one decade ago. Central to this new initiative is publication under full open access.


Über den Autor

Christian Fabjan is an experimental particle physicist, who spent the major part of his career at CERN, with leading involvement in several of the major CERN programmes. At the Intersecting Storage Rings he concentrated on Strong interaction physics and the development of new experimental techniques and followed at the Super Synchrotron with experiments in the Relativistic Heavy Ion programme. At the Large Hadron Collider he focused on the development of several experimental techniques, and participated to the ALICE experiment as Technical Coordinator. He is affiliated with the Vienna University of Technology and was, most recently, leading the institute of High Energy Physics of the Austrian Academy of Sciences.    

Herwig Franz Schopper joined as a research associate at CERN since 1966 and returned in 1970 as leader of the Nuclear Physics Division, and went on to become a member of the directorate responsible for the co-ordination of CERN's experimental programme. He was chairman of the ISR Committee at CERN from 1973 to 1976 and was elected as member of the Scientific Policy Committee in 1979. Following Léon Van Hove and John Adams' years as Director-General for research and executive Director-General, Schopper became the sole Director-General of CERN in 1981. 

Schopper's years as CERN's Director-General saw the construction and installation of the Large Electron-Positron Collider (LEP) and the first tests of four detectors for the LEP experiments. Several facilities (including ISR, BEBC and EHS) had to be closed to free up resources for LEP.
