Relativistic rise measurement by cluster counting method in time expansion chamber

Description: A new approach to the measurement of the ionization energy loss for the charged particle identification in the region of the relativistic rise was tested experimentally. The method consists of determining in a special drift chamber (TEC) the number of clusters of the primary ionization. The method gives almost the full relativistic rise and narrower landau distribution. The consequences for a practical detector are discussed.

Signals for tau neutrino events in a beam dump experiment

Description: Ways of detecting tau neutrinos emerging from a beam dump are studied. Key signatures are elaborated and contrasted with background arising from muon and electron neutrino interactions. Expected event rates are given for various neutrino spectra. 16 references.

Sensitive method for detecting stable fractional charges on matter. [Proposed apparatus]

Description: The design of an apparatus which will allow direct detection of stable fractional elementary charges if present on matter at the level of 10/sup -24/ per nucleon is described in detail. This method depends upon production of a highly uniform and parallel stream of conductive spheres which are charge analyzed by passage through a static electric deflecting field. 6 references.
