Measurement and simulation of the drift pulses and resolution in the micro-jet chamber

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

We have tested a prototype of a micro-jet chamber, using both a nitrogen laser and a 10GeV electron beam. The achieved resolution in the particle beam was sigma = 18..mu..m for a lmm impact parameter and 22..mu..m when averaging over the entire beam profile. The experimental results were compared to a Monte Carlo program which simulates the pulse shapes and resolution in drift chambers of any geometry. The main emphasis in our simulation analysis was to study various strategies for drift chambers in order to achieve the best possible timing resolution.
