Caption: Detectors at Jefferson Lab. Overall view of Hall C at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility, or Jefferson Lab. Hall C was the first of three experiment halls to be completed at the site. Two detectors are seen here; the High Momentum Spectrometer (HMS, left) and the Short Orbit Spectrometer (SOS, right). These are used to characterise the particles generated when an electron beam strikes a target at energies of around 4 billion electron volts (GeV). This energy is especially useful for investigating the quark structure of matter. Jefferson Lab is at Newport News, Virginia, USA.
