Project: Experimental study of the spin structure of nucleons through deep inelastic scattering of electrons : detection and identification of kaons in a RICH-detector in the HERMES-experiment.

project duration
01-OCT-98 – 30-SEP-00
abstract
To determine the contribution of seaquarks to the spin of the nucleons, a RICH-detector was constructed for use in the HERMES-experiment Desy (Hamburg). It is the first detector that uses a dual (gas and aerogel) radiator. Within this project the necessary analysis software for this detector will be developped and implemented.
