View Full Version : Question on Cern and the collider

Does anyone have a source for the tolerances and accuracy in which the tunnel was built? And the same question for the positioning of the collider itself

I don't offhand, but I'm sure you can find that kind of information either on their site or by searching around. A couple of months ago I was looking for similar information about a different facility (an XFEL) and managed to find quite a bit though it took some searching.

their site

Not to belittle Hans' search skills, but others might be looking for it too: http://public.web.cern.ch/public/

Try 'building specifications' in their search box.
