Caption: The DORIS II particle collider at DESY, the German particle physics laboratory in Hamburg. Originally built in 1969-74, DORIS was rebuilt to become DORIS II in 1981-82. DORIS II is oval in shape, & 288 metres in circumference. It accelerates beams of electrons & positrons in opposite directions within the same beam pipe & collides them at selected points at a maximum energy of 5.6 GeV per beam. It also generates synchrotron radiation for use in a separate laboratory, known as Hasylab, & this picture shows the point at which the various beam pipes carrying the synchrotron radiation (left) diverge from the main DORIS ring (blue magnets). DORIS stands for "DOuble RIng Storage".
