Abstract

What are the ultimate building blocks of matter, and what forces act between them? These fundamental questions are being investigated by scientists at the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY) in Hamburg. As one knows the atomic nucleus consists of protons and neutrons. The protons and neutrons are made of different Quarks. One has to appreciate that the diameter of a proton is only 10-13cm and that of a Quark is smaller than 10-16 cm. Are the Quarks indivisible or can one split them once more? In search of these answers large particle accelerators are being built around the world. Within such an accelerator the protons and/or the electrons will be accelerated to the speed of light. In the area of the experiments the particles make head on collisions, such that the electrons will change their directions when they pass a proton or will collide with a proton and knock out a Quark or perhaps a part of a Quark. The courses of all these particles will be measured and then the physicists hope to answer the questions.
