Central drift chamber for rare kaon decay spectrometer

Academic Article


  • Design of the central drift chamber for BNL experiment 787 and measurement of the decay K+→π+vv are discussed. A jet chamber type cell with 6 sense wires and no interspersed field wires has been designed to achieve good spatial resolution and efficiency in a 1 T magnetic field. Results of the testing of a prototype chamber are presented. Copyright © 1986 by The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.
