Abstract

A scintillation detector meeting specific physics requirements and geometrical constraints is described. It operates with high efficiency inside a 1 T magnet in an intense charged particle beam of up to 3 × 106 particles/s. It uses a unique light collection system combining air space, wavelength shifter disc and conventional lucite light guides. The detector is used in a veto mode to identify interactions that produce an all-neutral final state. The details of the counter's design, construction and performance are described.
