HERA: Machine and Experiment

  • B. H. Wiik
Conference paper


HERA, the electron proton colliding beam facility [1] which is now under construction in Hamburg, has two distinct features. It is the first electron proton collider ever to be built and it is being realized within the framework of a novel form of international collaboration, where institutions in Canada, China, France, Netherlands, Israel, Italy, Poland, United Kingdom and the USA are contributing either technical components built at home or skilled manpower.
