How to become a BaBar Member or Associate

There are two categories of people connected to BaBar, Members and AssociatesMembers are individuals who participate in the physics program or who contribute significantly to the maintenance, operation or upgrade of the detector,  computing system, or PEP-II.  PhD physicists who have been Members for at least one year are listed as authors of BaBar papers. As a condition of membership, Members are required to perform service work as part of their contribution to the experiment.

BaBar Associates are generally not authors.  Typical examples are undergraduates, graduate students not concentrating on research, engineers, technicians, and programmers.

See the Membership Rules for more details.
