The Hadron Production Experiment at the PS
To study hadron production for the neutrino factory
and the atmospheric neutrino flux.
The HARP Spectrometer: The full acceptance is assured by a TPC and a forward spectrometer consistingof a dipole magnet with tracking chambers. Particle identification is defined by dE/dx, a threshold Cherenkov counter, time of flight and an electron and muon veto. The detector is shown above.
