Construction of a proton spectrometer for the H1 experiment to study diffraction at high luminosity at HERA (Desy-Hamburg).

Project Details


The phenomenon 'diffraction' in the high energy physics has received in the last years attention on both theoretical as experimental level. With the standard H1 detector, the selection of a diffractive occassion isn't simple and also, the background is significant. With the help of the forward proton spectrometer, a diffractive occasion can be very efficiently identified and the effect of the background events is reduced to a minimum.
