Caption: View of part of one side of the enormous UA1 detector at CERN, Geneva (see A105/001 description). The photograph shows light guides (wrapped in black) which take light to photo tubes (banks of small cylinders). The light comes from the part of the UA1 detector known as the Hadron Calorimeter, which consists of sheets of scintillator (where light is produced by the passage of a charged particle) interleaved with sheets of iron in the detector's huge magnet. The photo tubes convert the light to electrical impulses which are "read" by the detector's electronic system. (Sept.'84)
