A RICH prototype has been constructed and tested. The detector was cylindrical, 17 m long and 60 cm diameter, filled with neon gas at atmospheric pressure. A spherical mirror with 17 m focal length was used and 96 photomultipliers were placed in the mirror focal plane. The prototype was exposed to a 200 GeV/c momentum negative beam derived from the CERN SPS in the 2007 fall. The performances of the detector in terms of Cherenkov angle resolution, number of photoelectrons and time resolution are presented.

Abstract

A RICH prototype has been constructed and tested. The detector was cylindrical, 17 m long and 60 cm diameter, filled with neon gas at atmospheric pressure. A spherical mirror with 17 m focal length was used and 96 photomultipliers were placed in the mirror focal plane. The prototype was exposed to a 200 GeV/c momentum negative beam derived from the CERN SPS in the 2007 fall. The performances of the detector in terms of Cherenkov angle resolution, number of photoelectrons and time resolution are presented.
