Total Absorption Shower Counter Test

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

We propose to conduct a short test to check the basic concepts used in the Total Absorption Shower Counter (TASC) being developed for the Alvarez cosmic-ray experiment (BCR-5) on the HEAO-B satellite. The objective is to ascertain whether the probability for an incoming proton of energy E {ge} 100 GeV to interact in the TASC and simulate the response due to an incoming e{sup {+-}} is smaller than 10{sup -4}. We will thereby obtain a preliminary estimate of whether the TASC should be able to distinguish incident e{sup {+-}} from incident protons to one part in 10{sup 4} over the ... continued below
