Abstract

Charged particle identification in the barrel region of the PANDA target spectrometer will be delivered by a Barrel DIRC detector. The design of the Barrel DIRC has been developed using Monte-Carlo simulation and validated with a full-scaled prototype in particle beams. It features the narrow radiators made of synthetic fused silica, focusing optics with 3-layer spherical lenses, and a compact prism-shaped expansion volume instrumented with MCP-PMTs.
