The CHARM II Collaboration has built a massive, fine-grained and low-density detector for the study of muon-neutrino and muon-antineutrino scattering on electrons. The detector consists of a target calorimeter of 692 t of glass followed by a magnetic spectrometer. The calorimeter is used to detect the different types of neutrino interactions, and to measure the energy and direction of the produced particle showers; the spectrometer permits the determination of the momentum of muons produced in charged-current reactions on nuclei. The calorimeter is composed of 441 detector planes having a total of 154 560 plastic streamer tubes with digital readout of the wires and of 73920 cathode pickup strips grouped in 9240 channels with analog readout.

Abstract

The CHARM II Collaboration has built a massive, fine-grained and low-density detector for the study of muon-neutrino and muon-antineutrino scattering on electrons. The detector consists of a target calorimeter of 692 t of glass followed by a magnetic spectrometer. The calorimeter is used to detect the different types of neutrino interactions, and to measure the energy and direction of the produced particle showers; the spectrometer permits the determination of the momentum of muons produced in charged-current reactions on nuclei. The calorimeter is composed of 441 detector planes having a total of 154 560 plastic streamer tubes with digital readout of the wires and of 73920 cathode pickup strips grouped in 9240 channels with analog readout. It is further instrumented with 1540 scintillators. A complete description of the detector and some results of its performance with cosmic-ray muons are presented.
