The UA2 detector

The UA2 detector had a more limited scope than the UA1 detector: it could detect electrons but not muons, it focused on the central rapidity region, and it could not measure particle charges except for limited regions where the W decay asymmetry was maximal. But what it could do it did better than UA1. It provided the most accurate measurements of the W and Z masses and had excellent jet-detection capability.
