The three spectrometer setup of the A1 Collaboration was built to perform high precision electro production experiments at the MAMI accelerator.
This setup is designed to make use of the high quality continous wave electron beam of MAMI. A large luminosity at low background together with high resolution spectrometers gives a new quality of virtual photon experiments in the energy range below 855 MeV.
