Caption: A Soviet engineer during construction of the DELPHI detector at CERN, the European centre for particle physics near Geneva. DELPHI is one of 4 giant particle detectors at the LEP electron- positron collider. DELPHI is a cylindrical assembly of many types of apparatus - wire chambers, calorimeters, cerenkov counters, & a time projection chamber - which fit like the layers of an onion around the point where the particles collide. The two huge "end caps" of the DELPHI detector can be seen to left & right behind the engineer. DELPHI is a collaboration of some 400 physicists & 400 support staff from 40 institutions in 18 countries.
