CDF Detector
CDF is one of two detectors that physicists use in the Tevatron tunnel to observe collisions between protons and antiprotons. As large as a three-story house, each detector contains many detection subsystems that identify the different types of particles emerging from collisions at almost the speed of light. Analyzing the "debris," scientists explore the structure of matter, space and time.
