  • Content Description: Use of optical fiber techniques particularly in particle tracking is discussed. Fundamental aspects of scintillating tracking detectors using the fiber-optic waveguide are described, including candidate core materials, fiber manufacture, properties of the scintillation materials and waveguides, attenuation length, and radiation resistance. The general consensus is expressed that most of the basic building blocks needed for fiber detector readout exist but require optimization. Attention is given to the imaging system components, including image intensifiers, electronic cameras, and digitizing systems. Also of concern is the ability of scintillating fiber detectors to handle high rates due to their granularity. Requirements for triggering are given. Also discussed are tracking, photodiode devices, and calorimetry. (LEW)
