Paper Abstract

An essential component of the CERN WA95/CHORUS experiment is a scintillating fiber tracker system made up of more than one million scintillating fibers, for the precise track reconstruction of particles. The design and construction of the tracker system as well as its opto-electronics readout are discussed. Performances of the detector are presented.
