Public information

General description of the central PANDA Straw Tube Tracker (STT). The Technical Design Report of the STT has been approved (Jan 2013) after an evaluation by the Expert Committee Experiments at FAIR and is published. A recent summary talk about the PANDA Straw Tube Tracker was given at the LEAP 2013 conference. More talks and publications can be found in the Publication list.

Beam tests

Beam times allocated for STT tests in 2014 (at COSY, Juelich):
  • 1 week, starting July-18th (cw 30), protons at 3.0, 0.8, 0.6 GeV/c. Setup at BigKarl beam area at COSY.
  • 1 week, starting Oct-13th (cw 42), deuterons at 2.0, 1.3, 1.0 GeV/c
  • 1 week, starting Dec-1 (cw 49), protons at 2.0, 1.3, 1.0 GeV/c

Beam weeks are from friday-friday or monday-monday. The COSY beam time schedule can be found here: COSYSchedule2014.pdf
