Operation Terminology


A store consists of the colliding proton and antiproton particle beams. (A shot consists of injecting bunches of protons and antiprotons into the TeV. It becomes a store once all 36 bunches of protons and 36 bunches of antiprotons are accelerated, circulating, and ready to be brought to collision.)
