Development of Photon Detectors for a Fast Focusing DIRC
Study of the Hodoscopes used in testing the focussing DIRC prototype at SLAC. A second hodoscope was added for the most recent beamtest aft of the detector and startcounters and its utility is analyzed relative to the other hodoscope which precedes the detector. (given at an R&D meeting September 2006).
Cherenkov Detectors in
Particle Physics - This presentation traces the history of Cherenkov detectors
from the first ideas of Seguinot and Ypsilantis to RICH detector to the CRID to
ACCs to the DIRC to prototypes of future detectors. Special emphasis is given to the
DIRC detector at BaBar, with which the presenter has personal experience.
