The time-projection ring imaging cherenkov (rich) counter - new experimental results

Abstract

A TPC-type RICH-counter with a 200 × 200 mm<sup>2</sup> quartz window and a 1.27 mm wire pitch MWPC has been tested in a 10 GeV/c &#x003C0;<sup>-</sup> beam. The MWPC is equipped with optical screens (called "cloisons") between the anode wires, with the purpose of absorbing the secondary UV-photons emitted from the charge avalanches around the wires. The… (More)
