Detectors for High Rate Colliding Beam Experiments

  • P. G. Innocenti
Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 14)

Summary

An analysis of the performance of large solid angle detectors to be used at colliding beam facilities is attempted, with a view of reducing the overall dimensions, yet keeping a satisfactory quality of the data. Special attention is given to position measurements and particle identification and to high event rates.
