Experiments @ CERN
The current experimental programme at CERN is summarized in the electronic version of the Grey Book.
The experiments listed used one of the following machines: the Large Electron Positron Collider (LEP), the Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS), the 28 GeV Proton Synchrotron (PS), including the Antiproton Decelerator (AD) for slow antiprotons and the ISOLDE facility for short-lived ions. Six experiments have been approved for installation at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and the R&D projects aimed at developing new detector technologies and data acquisition systems for the LHC experiments are also listed.
A number of 'Recognized Experiments' are also listed. As a complement to CERN's Scientific Programme, these experiments, considered to be of importance to High Energy Physics, have been given, on a case by case basis, this recognition status by the Research Board.
