The OLYMPUS Collaboration

The OLYMPUS Collaboration took data at the DORIS storage ring using the BLAST detector. For this purpose, the BLAST detector was shipped from MIT-Bates Linear Accelerator Center to DESY. Data were taken in 2012 and early 2013, until the DORIS operation ended. The aim of the experiment is to measure the two photon contribution to elastic electron scattering at high precision.
