Characteristics of a delay-line readout in a cylindrical drift chamber system Academic Article uri icon


  • This paper reports on the design, construction, and operational characteristics of a delay-line readout implemented on the cathode foils of a cylindrical drift chamber system. The readout was used to determine the position of an event along the length of the 1.74 m drift wires in the MEGA detectors used at the Los Alamos Meson Physics Facility. The performance of the system is interpreted by comparison to a PSPICE simulation, and to simple analytical models. © 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
