We have built a large area hodoscope to identify muons from semileptonic decays of beauty particles produced in the WA92 experiment at the CERN Super-Proton-Synchrotron. The hodoscope is made of resistive electrode chambers read out with strips of 3 cm pitch. The hodoscope has a fast response with a time resolution of 5 ns and a space resolution of 1 cm. A fast trigger processor selects straight tracks pointing to the interaction vertex in a fixed processing time of 90 ns.

Abstract

We have built a large area hodoscope to identify muons from semileptonic decays of beauty particles produced in the WA92 experiment at the CERN Super-Proton-Synchrotron. The hodoscope is made of resistive electrode chambers read out with strips of 3 cm pitch. The hodoscope has a fast response with a time resolution of 5 ns and a space resolution of 1 cm. A fast trigger processor selects straight tracks pointing to the interaction vertex in a fixed processing time of 90 ns.
