The fruitful run 2016/2017 is finished. The data was collected in the energy range of 640-1003.5 MeV per beam (experiment 'HIGH2017'). The total integrated luminosity amounts to 53 pbn-1 per each detector, that is comparable to the data collected during three runs 2010-2013, and exceeds the total data collected by several generations of detectors at VEPP-2M (predessor of VEPP-2000). These excellent results were achieved due to usage of new powerful BINP Injection Complex and of course due to hard work of skilled VEPP-2000 team.

Above the design top energy!

The run 2016/2017 is going on. Both detectors are taking data while VEPP-2000 is moving step by step from the 850 MeV/beam energy level to it's top limit. The experimental program was suddenly expanded with request to collect some data @ 2007MeV at c.m., that corresponds to D0*-meson mass. Today this energy was surprisingly achieved and even surpassed. The Compton Back Scattering beam energy measurement system fixed the moment of energy tuning with 1005 MeV per beam value.
