Description

A number of varieties of velocity-selecting Cerenkov counters have been described by Dr. John Marshall. The authors will present a description of a counter different from any described by Marshall in his review article, but of the same type mentioned descriptively by Marshall in another article under the heading ''Cylindrical mirror counter without lens''. Some tests of this type of counter were carried out by S.J. Lindenbaum and L.C. Yuan. The counter we describe was developed for the detection of a small fraction of antiprotons in a beam of negative particles originating at the target of the Bevatron. As far ... continued below

Description

A number of varieties of velocity-selecting Cerenkov counters have been described by Dr. John Marshall. The authors will present a description of a counter different from any described by Marshall in his review article, but of the same type mentioned descriptively by Marshall in another article under the heading ''Cylindrical mirror counter without lens''. Some tests of this type of counter were carried out by S.J. Lindenbaum and L.C. Yuan. The counter we describe was developed for the detection of a small fraction of antiprotons in a beam of negative particles originating at the target of the Bevatron. As far as the authors are aware, this represents the first practical use of a velocity-selecting Cerenkov counter in an experimental investigation.
