Particle physics at high energies would be impossible without powerful accelerators and high-resolution detectors. This chapter discusses the basic technological and physical principles used for those devices. The LEP electron-positron collider is used to illustrate the issues pertaining to large particle accelerators. After introducing the physics of particle detectors, the specific example of the ALEPH detector is presented.

Keywords:   particle accelerators, center-of-mass energy, luminosity, beam optics, tracking detectors, calorimeters, particle identification, ALEPH detector
