A set of particle detectors has been exposed to beams of _(79)Au nuclei at ~ 11 Ge V /nucleon from the Alternating Gradient Synchrotron (AGS) at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL). We report preliminary results on the responses obtained from silicon solid state detectors and from Cerenkov counters utilizing total internal reflection with waveshifter bars for readout.
