CHARGE RESOLUTION OF PLASTIC TRACK DETECTORS USED TO IDENTIFY RELATIiISTIC NUCLEI

Abstract

We present measurements of charge resolution in the plastic track detectors CR-39(DOP) and Tuffak polycarbonate over the region 10 5 Z//3 5 105, determined from plastic stacks exposed to projectile fragments of 1.29 GeV/u ‘39La, 1.45 GeV/u “Kr, and 1.70 GeV/u 56Fe produced by nuclear interactions within the stacks, and to 0.96 GeV/u 23*U and 1.0 GeV/u 19’Au… (More)
