Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A large cylindrical drift chamber has been constructed for the MARK III detector at SPEAR. The inner layer has a high density of sense wires for the measurement of kinks, vees, and dE dx. The outer layers have a cell design with three sense wires, giving uniform drift behavior and left/right ambiguity resolution within a cell. The chamber has both current division and stereo layers for longitudinal position measurement.
