Caption: One end of the Time Projection Chamber (TPC) part- icle detector at the PEP collider at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center in California. The TPC is a 2m long gas-filled cylinder, divided into two equal sections by a membrane held at a high volt- age. Charged particles traversing the chamber ion- ise the gas, releasing electrons which drift away from the membrane towards the ends of the chamber where they are recorded by wires arranged in 6 sectors. The photo shows the web of cables that take the signals from these sectors for processing by the computer. The pipe through which the counter-rotating beams of electrons & positrons pass usually occupies the hole at centre.
