Abstract

Experiment 910 at the Brookhaven National Laboratory AGS accelerator is a study of proton-nucleus collisions using 6, 12.5 and 18 GeV/c proton beams. E910 was designed to have close to 100% acceptance, and to provide a large enough data sample to allow particle production to be studied as a function of collision “centrality”. The E910 spectrometer is built around a large TPC, as shown schematically in fig. 1. Because the TPC does not provide good particle identification or momentum resolution at high momentum, these are obtained by including downstream tracking, a time of flight detector and a Cherenkov detector.
