Paper Abstract

The CERN WA95/CHORUS Collaboration has been constructing a detector to search for neutrino oscillations. An essential component of the detector is a scintillating fiber tracker system for precise track reconstruction of particles. An overview of the tracker system design, its opto-electronics readout, data processing and test beam measurements is presented.
