This is a simulated event from the BaBar Experiment, showing the decays of a B0-meson and its antiparticle. It is one of 568 million BaBar events simulated using the UK Particle Physics Grid, each event taking 5 seconds of processor time to generate. The Grid allows us to use the resources of many sites round the country: for this production we used four sites (the event shown here was generated at the RAL Tier A).
The display shows the two B-mesons' decay products as curved tracks (in red) in the central region of the detector (move your mouse over the image to see a blow-up of the central tracking detectors). Some particles also deposit energy in the calorimeters (green and blue blocks). Particle identification is assisted by measuring the Cherenkov rings, which are also shown. A real event from the detector would look much the same (as of April 2007, we have recorded 430 million B-meson events).
I previously worked on the DELPHI Experiment, which
observed the first W+W- event from LEP.
OK, that's the interesting stuff out of the way. Now on to some...
