This document describes the beryllium vertex beam pipe that will be used
in the CLEO III detector. CLEO is one of the most successful
experiments in particle physics.
The experiment began in the late 1970's and has been
upgraded twice since its installation at Cornell.
The CLEO III project is a major upgrade consisting of a new
particle identification detector and a new charged tracking system.
Concurrent with this upgrade to the detector is an upgrade of
Cornell Electron-positron Storage Ring (CESR). This CESR
upgrade will include a new set of final focusing magnets that
focus the counter rotating beams that collide at the center of CLEO.
The CLEO III vertex beam pipe is the interface between the ring and the
detector. It is the window between the beam chamber and the sensitive
elements of the experiment which are built as close as possible to the
collision point of the two beams.
