A tracking system for the external target facility of CSR

A tracking system composed of three multi-wires proportional chambers (MWPCs) for the external target facility of the Cooler Storage Ring is reported in this paper. The active areas of the MWPCs are 518 mm × 400 mm, 582 mm × 450 mm, and 710 mm × 500 mm. Each MWPC consists of a series of alternately placed cathode and anode wire planes and can measure position along the directions of −30°, 0°, and 30° relative to horizontal. The construction and operation of the detectors are described, and a method for track reconstruction is introduced. A track-finding efficiency of about 62% and a spatial resolution of 1.21 mm have been achieved. The pion and proton can be identified clearly with the tracking system combined with a time-of-flight system.
