Abstract
The Central Drift Chamber of the BELLE detector at the KEK B-factory is a c ylindrical wire chamber device that uses a helium-based gas and aluminum fi eld wires and is situated in a 1.5 T magnetic field. The transverse momentu m resolution for charged tracks with 1.0 GeV/c transverse momentum is 0.35% . This paper describes the chamber's configuration and performance. (C) 200 0 Elsevier Science B.V.
