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-JAN-99 – 31-DEC-02
- To determine the contribution of seaquarks to the spin of the nucleons, a RICH-detector was constructed for use in the HERMES-experimentaat 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.
