Abstract

We present the results of an upgrade to the DØ muon system. Scintillating counters have been added to the existing central DØ muon system to provide rejection for cosmic-ray muons and out-of-time background, and to provide additional fast-timing information for muons in an upgraded Tevatron. Performance and results from the 1994-1996 Tevatron run are presented.
