Particle identification via Cherenkov correlated timing

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We describe a new particle-identification technique based on precision timing measurements to determine the Cherenkov angle of photons emitted by particles passing through a quartz radiator. A Monte Carlo simulation indicates that good π-K separation can be obtained for a large range of particle momenta and incident angles. A prototype detector to demonstrate the feasibility of the concept is under construction.
