The Beijing Electron–Positron Collider II (BEPC II) is a Chinese electron–positron collider, a type of particle accelerator, located in Beijing, People's Republic of China. It has been in operation since 2008 and has a circumference of 240m.[citation needed]

It has the following energy levels:[citation needed]

BES III[edit]

The BES III (Beijing Spectrometer III) is the main detector[1] for the upgraded BEPC II.

BES III uses a large superconducting solenoid (the most powerful magnet in China[citation needed]) to provide a 1-tesla magnetic field, and also features a helium gas-based tracking chamber and a calorimeter using 6240 caesium iodide crystals.
