Paper Abstract

We review several new applications of scintillating fibers. One application is to be used in the experiment E803 at Fermilab which is designed to detect the neutrino oscillations (nu) (mu ) yields (nu) (tau ). A fiber tracker is to be used to localize the interaction inside a ton of nuclear emulsion and to help carry out real time detection of this process. Another application is to measure the emittance change of a cooling (mu) +/- beam for a (mu) +(mu) - collider that is being studied by a group of scientists from US institutions. Scintillating fiber tracking could also be used in a detector for the (mu) +(mu) - collider and for the UCLA Asymmetric (phi) Factory due to unusual requirements.
