Abstract

We present the results of the first measurements in a study of drift chamber performance in very strong magnetic fields. The angle of the electron drift has been measured as a function of electric and magnetic field intensity for an argon-isobutane-methylal gas mixture. Fields up to 5500 V/cm and 4.5 T have been studied.
