Abstract

The performance and circuitry of a hodoscoped array of 200 counters used on an experiment at Brookhaven is described. The circuitry, transistors, and phototubes all showed remarkable long-term stability. The lifetime of the transistors was 0.5 x 10{sup 8} h, and only one out of the 200 phototubes deteriorated after six months use. A simple set of diagnostic routines checked performance of the apparatus in half an hour. The data was recorded on film, and the film was read with a ''programmed spot'' scanner into the M.I.T. TXO computer. One hour is required to read a 400-ft roll of film by this system. A simple modification has been made to the apparatus whereby the data is stored in parallel into a shift register and then read out serially onto magnetic tape. Such a system writes a 300-bit event on to tape in 1 ms and obviates the necessity for buffer storage.

(author) [French] Les auteurs decrivent le comportement et le circuit d'un odoscope de 200 compteurs utilise a l'echelon du laboratoire a Brookhaven. Le circuit, les transistors et les phototubes se sont reveles extremement stables sur une longue periode. Les transistors ont fonctionne 0,5 {center_dot} 10{sup 8} heures et un seul des 200 phototubes a ete endommage apres six mois d'usage. Grace a un programme de controle systematique, on a pu verifier le comportement de l'appareil en une demi-heure. Les donnees ont ete enregistrees sur films et le film a l'aide d'un teledecteur a spot programme dans un calculateur M.I.T. TXO. Ce systeme permet de lire plus de 1,20 m de pellicule en une heure. On a modifie l'appareil d'une maniere simple qui permet de stocker les donnees en parallele dans un registre a decalage et de les lire, par series, sur une bande magnetique. Ce systeme permet d'ecrire un evenement de 300 chiffres binaires sur la bande en un millieme de seconde et d'eviter de recourir a la memoire intermediaire. (author) [Spanish] La memoria describe las caracteristicas de funcionamiento y los circuitos de un sistema de 200 contadores dispuestos para hodoscopia, que se ha empleado en Brookhaven para fines experimentales. Los circuitos, los transistores y los fototubos se mostraron sumamente estables a largo plazo. La vida de los transistores fue de 0,5 . 10{sup 8} horas, y solo uno de los 200 fototubos se estropeo a los 6 meses de funcionamiento. El correcto funcionamiento del aparato es comprobado en media hora por una sencilla serie de rutinas de diagnostico. Los autores registraron los datos en una pelicula que fue leida por un barrido programado en la calculadora TXO del Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Para leer 400 pies (122 metros) de pelicula por este sistema, se precisa una hora. Se ha introducido una pequena modificacion en el aparato, que ahora almacena los datos paralelamente en un registro de desplazamiento y los pasa en serie a una cinta magnetica. Este sistema escribe en cinta un suceso de 300 bits en un milisegundo y hace innecesario el almacenaje intermedio.
