The BaBar detector

To exploit the PEP-II facility, a new detector has been built by a large international collaboration of physicists. The detector is called BaBar, which refers to the B/B-bar system of mesons produced at SLAC's PEP-II collider. The BaBar detector consists of a silicon vertex detector, a drift chamber, a particle identification system, a CsI electromagnetic calorimeter, and a magnet with an instrumented flux return. The detector operations page gives up-to-date information on the running of the detector.
