- A fundamental particle with the same quantum numbers as the
photon, but with a mass of 91.16 GeV. Like the W- and W+
particles, the Z is a carrier of the electroweak force.
Discovered at CERN in 1983, the production and study of this
neutral intermediate boson is the object of the SLC.
- Z Location
- Any SLC device has a Z location in meters (longitudinal
distance from some reference point). The reference point for the
SLC system is at the beginning of sector 1 (CID has negative
numbers). For example, QUAD 111 (the first magnet in sector 1)
has a Z position of 0.8000000 meters).
