Abstract

The design and main parameters of the completly redesigned DØ Forward Angle MUon System (FAMUS: 1.0 < |η| < 2.0) for the next high luminosity Tevatron Collider run are reported. Results of the studies of trigger scintillation counters based on fast scintillator Bicron 404A and WLS bars SOFZ-105 are presented. We report about results of test beam studies of prototype counters including minimum ionizing particles detection efficiency, time resolution and amplitude response. Radiation ageing of scintillating materials for the doses up to 1 Mrad, phototubes magnetic shielding in the fields of up to 700 G and ageing of phototubes are presented. All tests show robustness of scintillation counters as triggering detector of the new muon system for a long period.
