    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; heavy-ion collisions; position resolution; wire chamber pixel readout; pad readout; tracking; multi-step avalanche chamber; Fysik; Physics; particle ratios;

    Abstract : Heavy-ion collisions at high energies calls for new technical solutions to cope with the very high multiplicities of produced particles. In this thesis the design and development of two types of tracking chambers for high multiplicity environments are presented. READ MORE

  3. 3. Aspects of Hadron Production in High-Energy Heavy-Ion Physics

    University dissertation from Department of Physics, Lund University

    Author : David Silvermyr; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2001]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; RHIC; pad readout; electronic; chip-on-board; tracking; heavy-ion collisions; freeze-out temperature; delta resonance; SPS; WA98; PHENIX; Fysik; coherent peripheral; multiplicity; Physics; Fysicumarkivet A:2001:Silvermyr;

    Abstract : High-energy heavy-ion collisions provide a unique tool for the study of nuclear matter as a function of temperature and density. WA98 at the CERN SPS recorded data with a 158 A GeV Pb beam on a Pb target in 1996. To cope with the high charged-particle density, a tracking system based on high granularity multi-step avalanche detectors was developed. READ MORE

  4. 4. Delta++ Resonance Measurements in a High Multiplicity Environment

    University dissertation from Department of Physics, Lund University

    Author : Karim El Chenawi; [1999]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; electronic; pad readout; VLSI; ASIC; chip-on-board; multi-step avalanche chamber; MSAC; tracking; position resolution; efficiency; delta resonance; heavy-ion collisions; freeze-out temperature; High energy interactions; cosmic rays; Kosmisk strålning; högenergi; Fysicumarkivet A:1999:El Chenawi;

    Abstract : The very large multiplicity of charged particles encountered in lead on lead collisions in the WA98 experiment at the CERN SPS provided new experimental challenges. Tracking detectors read out with high granularity were developed to achieve accurate position information in two dimensions, with the aim of reconstructing tracks with a minimum of combinatorial difficulties.
