E706 reunion in Kuhn Barn

Many members of the research team that carried out the Fermilab fixed-target experiment E706 gathered recently in Kuhn Barn from across the country and around the world to spend an evening catching up and celebrating. The Meson West beamline and collision hall were built to accommodate this precision investigation of perturbative quantum chromodynamics. The Meson West spectrometer recorded data during the 1987-88 and 1990-91 fixed-target runs. The E706 collaboration published its most influential paper in 1998. Thirty-three Ph.D.s were awarded based on results from the experiment. Photo: Allison Mansour
