A high rate transition radiation detector for particle identification in a hadron beam

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A Transition Radiation Detector (TRD) was built for the purpose of tagging beam particles in a high rate (/approximately/2 MHz) 250 GeV/c hadron beam during data taking for Experiment 769 at Fermilab. The availability of a good ''tool kit'', including a Monte Carlo program which could reliably predict the detector performance, made it possible to design and build the TRD in approximately one year. Pion or proton samples, each with a small contamination due to the other, could be selected with high efficiency by making cuts on the number of planes of the TRD registering hits for each incident beam ... continued below

Pion or proton samples, each with a small contamination due to the other, could be selected with high efficiency by making cuts on the number of planes of the TRD registering hits for each incident beam particle. The detector is expected to work well to separate kaons from pions in the 500 GeV/c negative beam for E791. 15 refs., 8 figs., 1 tab.
