Description

We propose here an experiment designed to search for the existence of heavy leptons ({lambda}{sup +}) produced in the collisions of 400 GeV/c protons with matter in the beam dump. These charged leptons, which are assumed to decay by weak interaction will be detected by the interactions of their neutrinos ({upsilon}{sub {lambda}}, {bar {upsilon}}{sub {lambda}}) in a Ne bubble chamber. For leptons with masses of greater than 1 GeV, the {lambda} life time is expected to be too short for the lepton to be observed visually, therefore, the lepton must be identified by a detailed comparison with ordinary {upsilon}{sub {mu}} ... continued below

Description

We propose here an experiment designed to search for the existence of heavy leptons ({lambda}{sup +}) produced in the collisions of 400 GeV/c protons with matter in the beam dump. These charged leptons, which are assumed to decay by weak interaction will be detected by the interactions of their neutrinos ({upsilon}{sub {lambda}}, {bar {upsilon}}{sub {lambda}}) in a Ne bubble chamber. For leptons with masses of greater than 1 GeV, the {lambda} life time is expected to be too short for the lepton to be observed visually, therefore, the lepton must be identified by a detailed comparison with ordinary {upsilon}{sub {mu}} interactions. We request 200,000 pictures with the beam protons hitting the shield directly and 200,000 pictures with the normal high energy {upsilon}{sub {mu}} beam. In the latter pictures we will study deep inelastic {upsilon}{sub {mu}} scattering, search for muonless {upsilon}{sub {mu}} interactions, search for {upsilon}{sub {mu}} diffractive processes and search for {Delta}S = -{Delta}Q in strange particle production processes. This experiment does not require the E{Pi} or a plate in the bubble chamber although the latter would be very useful and can run without the horn.
