Abstract
A Time-of-Flight detector (TOF) has been incorporated into the CDF-II exper iment in order to provide charged kaon identification to improve neutral B meson flavor determination. With an expected time-of-flight resolution of 1 00 ps, the system will be able to provide 2 standard deviation separation b etween K+/- and pi (+/-) for momenta p < 1.6 GeV/c, complementing the speci fic ionization energy loss dE/dx measured with the new drift chamber.
