Proposal for mu p scattering experiment at NAL

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

It is proposed to use a muon beam at NAL to study inelastic scattering. The muon beam will have an energy 100 {+-} 2.5 GeV, with 10{sup 6} instantaneous, 3 x 10{sup 5} average, muons per second. If a beam of 10{sup 7}/sec becomes available it is possible that improved technology will immediately allow its use. The scattered muons and the electro-produced hadrons will be detected in a spectrometer system consisting of a large magnet equipped with a set of wire spark chambers and scintillation counters. It is proposed to use both hydrogen and deuterium targets, of length 200 cms. ... continued below

Description

It is proposed to use a muon beam at NAL to study inelastic scattering. The muon beam will have an energy 100 {+-} 2.5 GeV, with 10{sup 6} instantaneous, 3 x 10{sup 5} average, muons per second. If a beam of 10{sup 7}/sec becomes available it is possible that improved technology will immediately allow its use. The scattered muons and the electro-produced hadrons will be detected in a spectrometer system consisting of a large magnet equipped with a set of wire spark chambers and scintillation counters. It is proposed to use both hydrogen and deuterium targets, of length 200 cms. The experiment has in particular the following goals: (1) Measure the structure function W{sub 2}(q{sup 2}, {upsilon}) over the range 20 GeV < {upsilon} < 90 GeV, and 0.2 < q < 20 (GeV/c){sup 2}. (2) Study rho electroproduction in such a manner as to obtain the density matrix elements as a function of q{sup 2}, t, and {upsilon}. (3) Study the momentum spectrum and multiplicity of the electro-produced hadrons. (4) Use the recoil protons to make a study of the electroproduction of forward going mesons. It is estimated that these measurements will require 800 hours of running time.
