Abstract
A simple network of comparators applied to the strip signals of a cathode s trip chamber allows quick hit localization to within a halfstrip width, or +/- a quarter-strip. A six-plane chamber with 6.4 mm wide strips was tested in a high-energy muon beam. The chamber was placed behind a 30 cm thick ir on block. We show that patterns of hits localized to within a halfstrip all owed us To identify 300 GeV/c muon tracks with 99% probability and 0.7 mm s patial resolution in the presence of bremsstrahlung radiation. This techniq ue of finding muon tracks will be used in the cathode strip chambers of the CMS Endcap Muon System. (C) 1999 Published by Elsevier Science B.V. All ri ghts reserved.
