High-Energy Antimatter Telescope ( HEAT ) : Basic Design and PerformanceS

The High-Energy Antimatter Telescope (HEAT) instrument has been own successfully by high-altitude balloon in 1994 and 1995, in a connguration optimized for the detection and identiication of cosmic-ray electrons and positrons at energies from about 1 GeV up to 50 GeV and beyond. It consists of a two-coil superconducting magnet and a precision drift-tube… CONTINUE READING
