Title: Collaborative Research: Equipment for and Running of the PSI MUSE Experiment

The R&D funding from this award has been a significant tool to move the Muon Scattering Experiment (MUSE) at the Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland forward to the stage of realization. Specifically, this award has enabled Dr. Michael Kohl and his working group at Hampton University to achieve substantial progress toward the goal of providing beam particle tracking with Gas Electron Multiplier (GEM) detectors for MUSE experiment. Establishing a particle detection system that is capable of operating in a high-intensity environment, with a data acquisition system capable of running at several kHz, combined with robust tracking software providing high efficiency for track reconstruction in the presence of noise and backgrounds will have immediate application in many other experiments.
