Title: The Moscow-Juelich Frozen-Pellet Target

Abstract

Frozen-pellet targets promise to be ideally suited for high luminosity storage-ring experiments with a 4{pi}-detector geometry. Such a target has been set up at the FZJ by a group from ITEP and MPEI. It comprises a vibration-free cooling system based on liquid nitrogen and helium and, thus, allows one to use various liquefiable gases like H2, D2, N2, Ne, Ar, Kr and Xe as target material.During several test runs, stable production of pellets with diameters down to {approx}20 {mu}m has been achieved. Their spatial distributions and angular spreads have been determined with the help of fast CCD cameras and the pellet size and frequency stabilities have been measured.
