Celebrating the Tevatron: Machine
Presented by Dr. Stephen HOLMES on 13 Aug 2011 from 14:30 to 15:00
Type: Plenary contribution
Session: Plenary Session
For 25 years the Tevatron Proton-Antiproton Collider was the highest energy collider in the world. This presentation will trace the origins of the Tevatron, the challenges that were overcome in creating high luminosity collisions of protons and antiprotons, the technological achievements that drove performance a factor of 400 beyond the initial performance goals, and the legacy of the Tevatron in paving the way for ever more advanced colliders.
