ARGUS (experiment)

ARGUS (experiment)

The ARGUS experiment was a particle physics experiment that ran at the electron-positron collider ring "DORIS II" at DESY. It is the first experiment that observed the mixing of the B mesons (in 1987) [ARGUS Collaboration, DESY preprint 87-029, April 1987. Published in Phys.Lett.B192:245,1987.] .

The ARGUS detector was a hermetic detector with 90% coverage of the full solid angle. It had drift chambers, a time-of-flight system, an electromagnetic calorimeter and a muon chamber system. [The ARGUS Collaboration, H. Albrecht et al., Nucl. Instrum. Methods A 275 1 (1989), p. 1-48.]
