Caption: The Large Detector at the Stanford Linear Collider (SLC), California, during its construction in 1988. The SLC was constructed to allow high- energy collisions between electrons and positrons in order to produce Z-naught particles, the 'carriers' of the weak nuclear force. The SLC programme is under the direction of Nobel laureate Burton Richter, and makes use of the 3km long linear accelerator, the largest in the world. The first Z-naught particles were detected in the SLC on 11 April 1989, some six years after their discovery at the CERN accelerator near Geneva, Switzerland.
