Technical Design Report for the PANDA Barrel DIRC Detector

  title={Technical Design Report for the PANDA Barrel DIRC Detector},
  author={P̄ANDA Collaboration},
This documents describes the technical design and the expected performance of the Barrel DIRC detector for the PANDA experiment. The Barrel DIRC will provide hadronic charged particle identification in the polar angle range of 22◦ to 140◦ for particle momenta between 0.5 GeV/c and 3.5 GeV/c. The design is based on the successful BaBar DIRC with several key improvements. The performance and system cost were optimized in detailed detector simulations and validated with full system prototypes…
