Performance of the radphi detector and trigger in a high rate tagged photon beam Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • We describe the design and operation of a detector system for measuring all-photon decays of mesons photoproduced in a tagged photon beam with energies between 4.3 and 5.4 GeV and a flux of 5 × 10 7 tagged photons per second. Photons from meson decays were detected with a lead-glass calorimeter with an energy resolution of 11% at 1 GeV. Various veto and trigger components were also present. Final states with as many as six photons were successfully detected and reconstructed. © 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
