  • A fiber-optic plate imaging system has been developed for active target and tracking applications, in which the active element is Ce(3+) in a silicate glass. Particle tracks and interactions have been recorded with a hit density of greater than or equal to 4/mm for minimum ionizing particles and with a spatial resolution sigma approx. = 28..mu.. m.) The properties of cerium scintillation glass are discussed.
  • A high resolution, fast gateable active target has been developed for Fermilab experiment E687 in order to study charm and beauty particle production and decay in high energy photon and hadron induced processes. The detector consists of a GS1 Cerium scintillating glass fiber-optic target, a multi-stage image intensifier and CCD camera system used in conjunction with a custom-built video data acquisition system. The authors currently detect less than or equal to 4 photoelectrons per mm with a resolution per photoelectron of sigma/sub pe/ < 25..mu..m.
  • The authors have studied the performance of scintillating glass fiber-optic plates using 10 GeV/c particles at the SLAC test beam. The plates were composed of: Terbium activated cladded-glass cores in a matrix of 15 ..mu..m spacing; and Cerium activated cladded-glass cores in a matrix of variable spacing 6-10 ..mu..m. The target plates were viewed with a three-stage, gatable image intensifier. Particle tracks and nuclear interactions were recorded on film for both materials. We observe 5 detected hits/mm for minimum ionizing particles for the Tb glass, and 1-2 hits/mm for the Ce glass. The test results indicate that scintillating glass fiber-opticmore » plates can be used as high spatial resolution tracking detectors for both fixed target and colliding beam experiments.« less
