View of the E144 apparatus , (JPEG, 107kB), large version, (JPEG, 215kB). The laser beam enters from the top left, then comes down the pipes on the right to collide with the electron beam in the stainless steel box. The scattered electrons are bent downwards, and positrons are bent upwards in the string of magnets (with purple ears). Wolfram Ragg is adjusting the ECAL detector. Theo Kotseroglou is in the background on the left.

This is the third of 3 laser tables, and contains the slab amplifier (top center, but hard to see), the anamorphic optics, the vacuum spatial filters (black tube on left, blue tube on right) and the large compression gratings (aluminum and gold objects just to right of center).
