The WiZard Collaboration is engaged in a program to study the antimatter components of the cosmic rays. A silicon-tungsten (WiW) imaging calorimeter has been developed as part of this program. We present its performance and preliminary results, obtained during a balloon flight on September 8, 1993. The flight was dedicated to the measurement of the positron spectrum in the energy range 4–50 GeV and took place from Ft. Sumner, New Mexico.

Abstract

The WiZard Collaboration is engaged in a program to study the antimatter components of the cosmic rays. A silicon-tungsten (WiW) imaging calorimeter has been developed as part of this program. We present its performance and preliminary results, obtained during a balloon flight on September 8, 1993. The flight was dedicated to the measurement of the positron spectrum in the energy range 4–50 GeV and took place from Ft. Sumner, New Mexico.
