Caption: Assembly of one of the arrays of lead glass blocks that will form the electromagnetic calorimeter of the OPAL particle detector. OPAL will be one of 4 major detectors at the new LEP (Large Electron- Positron) collider, due to start work in 1989 at CERN, the European particle physics laboratory outside Geneva. OPAL (Omni- Purpose Apparatus for LEP!) will consist of a number of sub-detectors, including drift chambers, scintillators & the 12, calorimeter. The lead glass arrays are assembled in the orange assembly frame. LEP's circular underground ring, 27 km in circumference, will be the largest scientific instrument ever built.
