Abstract
We report on the final tests performed on a CsI-based RICH detector equippe d with 3 C6F14 radiator trays and 4 photocathodes, each of 64 x 38 cm(2) ar ea. The overall performance of the detector is described, using different g as mixtures, in view of optimizing the photoelectron yield and the pad occu pancy. Test results under magnetic held up to 0.9 T, photocathode homogenei ty and stability are presented. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights r eserved.
