Proton-antiproton collider Tevatron (about 2 TeV in centre-of-mass)
Particles identification from several detectors
Physics processes and detectors response simulation softwares
Data analysis software
Different detectors with cylindrical symmetry, organized in layers around the beam axis:
- liquid argon calorimeter ;
- tracking detectors in a 2 Teslas magnetic field from a superconducting coil ;
- muons detectors.
New elements installed between 1996 and 2001 i.e. upgrades concerning: superconducting coil, new tracking detectors, new read-out electronics for the calorimeter ...
The calorimeter is partly made of depleted uranium plates in a liquid argon bath.
