Title: CRISIS detector. [40 and 100 GeV/c]

Abstract

The prototype of a charged-particle identifier with 1m x 1m acceptance was tested at Fermilab by use of a pion-proton beam at 40 and 100 GeV/c. Its operation is based on the principle of ionization sampling, and the test results indicate that the prototype achieved the 14% fwhm resolution predicted for the distribution of average ionization for 64 samples taken in an 80% Ar - 20% CO/sub 2/ gas mixture. Dependence of the performance on various parameters is discussed. 12 figures.
