Status of the BaBar Detector


The BaBar experiment, under construction at the PEP-II e+e- colliding beam storage ring, is motivated by the desire to study rare B decays, and especially CP violation in the B system. The requirements for design, and status of the construction of the various detector systems are summarized. Much of the construction is complete, and BaBar has entered the installation and check-out phase. Problems with potential schedule impact have been aggressively addressed, and it is planned to complete construction and roll onto the beam line in time for the start of physics collisions in April 1999, as originally scheduled.

The PDF version of this document was distilled from a PostScript file most likely created from LaTeX source which used Type 3 fonts. The resultant PDF may be unreadable on the screen at the default viewing magnification (fonts will appear bitmapped, jagged), though the type will be legible at higher magnifications.

Despite the cosmetic problems resulting from the use Type 3 fonts in the original source file, such PDF files print without problems; likewise, the onscreen text is searchable and selectable.
