Annual Report FY 2004 - Research at Cornell

05. Karl Berkelman, Physics

A Personal History of CESR and CLEO: The Cornell Electron Storage Ring and Its Main Particle Detector Facility (World Scientific Publishing Company, 2004). This historical account of the Cornell Electron Storage Ring (CESR) and its main detector facility, CLEO, is based on Berkelman’s recollections as a participant. The book covers the beginning of CESR and CLEO in the late 1970s until the end of data collection at particle energies above the threshold for B meson production in June 2001. The CESR electron-positron collider was the culmination of a series of electron accelerators constructed at the Cornell Laboratory of Nuclear Studies starting in 1945. Measurement of the products of the e+e– collisions was performed with the multipurpose CLEO apparatus, built and operated by the CLEO collaboration, which consisted of about 200 faculty, staff, and graduate students from more than 20 universities.
