Measurement of energy loss in the region of relativistic rise for particle identification
Abstract
A multilayer drift chamber of the socalled bicycle type with a radius of 1.5 m is considered. The useful track length will be 1/sub min/ = 1.3 m for a straight track at 90 deg to the beam axis. Two examples for possible subdivisions of this volume are chosen: number of layers, n = 200 and thickness/layer, x = 6.5 mm; and n = 56 and x = 23 mm. An analysis is given in which the counting gas, the pressure, and the maximum allowable particle rate are considered as variables.
