A precision measurement by the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer on the International Space Station of the positron fraction in primary cosmic rays in the energy range from 0.5 to 350 GeV based on 6.8 × 10(6) positron and electron events is presented. The very accurate data show that the positron fraction is steadily increasing from 10 to ∼ 250  GeV, but, from 20(More)
A prototype of a stripline Beam Position Monitor (BPM) with its associated readout electronics has been developed at CERN in collaboration with SLAC, LAPP and IFIC. In this paper, the design and simulations of the BPM with the analog readout chain and the BPM test bench are described, and the results of the first characterization tests are presented. The(More)
