Paper Abstract

A 96-channel, 3-superlayer scintillating fiber tracking system has been tested in a 5 GeV/c (pi) - beam. The scintillating fibers were 830 micrometers in diameter, spaced 850 micrometers apart within a layer, and 4.3 m in length. These were coupled to 6 m long clear waveguides and finally to Visible Light Photon Counters. A spatial resolution of approximately 150 micrometers for a double-layered ribbon was achieved with this tracking system.
