OVERVIEW

The BaBar experiment is an international effort of more than 500 physicists and engineers studying the microscopic world at an approximate energy of about ten times the rest mass of a proton (~10 GeV). Its goal is the study of CP violation, and it is located at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, which is operated by Stanford University for the Department of Energy in California.[+]
