Abstract
The production of pions in pp collisions at beam energies of less than or e qual to 300 MeV has been studied with the COSY-TOF spectrometer, which was recently extended to flight paths of approximate to 3 m for charged particl es through the addition of a barrel section. Together with the bremsstrahlu ng channel, which was investigated in an earlier experiment, pion productio n exhausts the inelastic pp cross section at these energies. TOF allows the simultaneous study of all channels, the measurement of pn pi(+) being faci litated by the neutron detector COSYnus. In this contribution, preliminary results on the pionic three-body final states are discussed.
