Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi all,

I'm reading an article describing the D0 experiment at Fermilab during Run II. Proportional drift tubes and mini drift tubes were used to detect muons: can someone explain me the difference between these two kinds of drift tubes?

Thanks

Federica

I'm reading an article
Please, don't tell us which one. It makes the thread so much better if we have to guess. :confused:

I wanted to attach the article here but the pdf is too large. Here's the link:

https://arxiv.org/abs/physics/0507191

It starts talking about proportional and mini drift tubes from page 69.

So that article, starting on page 77, does a good job of describing mini drift tubes. To get a description of the system they are replacing you need to get it from an older paper. Google had no trouble finding several.
