THE precision commonly quoted when measuring the position of a charged particle track is ±0.3 mm for wire plane spark chambers1, ±0.4 mm for streamer chambers2 and ±0.7 mm for multiwire proportional chambers3,4. With the onset of the new generation of synchrotrons there is a need for detectors with better resolution. This arises from the fact that the… CONTINUE READING
