A scintillating fibre hodoscope for high rate applications Academic Article uri icon


  • A scintillating fibre hodoscope was developed for application in a high rate environment such as the central region of external beam experiments. It accommodates rates of several 106s-1 per fibre channel while maintaining a time resolution of about 400 ps. Its central elements are highly efficient radiation-hard scintillating fibres and a photomultiplier tube capable of operating at such rates without appreciable loss of signal amplitude.
