Started in 1994 the L3 experiment has been equipped with a forward}backward muon spectrometer triggered by an RPC system. Made of 192 double-gap RPCs, it has been working for six years in streamer mode and it will continue to run at least one year more. We monitored the behaviour of the system during the L3 run periods and in this paper we report on its(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to compare virtual MR arthroscopic reconstructions with arthroscopic images in patients affected by shoulder joint instability. MR arthrography (MR-AR) of the shoulder is now a well-assessed technique, based on the injection of a contrast medium solution, which fills the articular space and finds its way between the(More)
n the framework of the ion cyclotron resonance frequency (ICRF) heating development at CEA Cadarache, a prototype antenna based on the load-resilient electrical layout foreseen for ITER has been built. This prototype was recently tested in Tore Supra. The ITER-like electrical scheme has been validated during fast perturbations at the edge plasma. Clear load(More)
The absolute muon flux between 20 and 3000 GeV is measured with the L3 magnetic muon spectrometer for zenith angles ranging from 0 • to 58 •. Due to the large exposure of about 150 m 2 sr d, and the excellent momentum resolution of the L3 muon chambers, a precision of 2.3% at 150 GeV in the vertical direction is achieved. The ratio of positive to negative(More)
The RPC chambers in the L3 forward–backward muon spectrometer have been operational from 1994 to the end of LEP running. After dismantling of the L3 detector some of the RPCs modules have been transported to Napoli where their performance has been re-measured with cosmic rays. Results of long-term performance in the LEP environment and of laboratory tests(More)
