The Isotope Matter-Antimatter Experiment Time-of-Flight System


A state-of-the-art time-of-flight (TOF) system has been developed for measuring particle velocities in the Isotope Matter-Antimatter Experiment (IMAX), a balloon-borne magnetic-rigidity spectrometer designed to measure the abundances and spectra of antiprotons and light isotopes in the cosmic radiation. Preliminary time-of-flight resolutions of 130 ps for protons and 105 ps for helium have been obtained. A description of the TOF system and an initial evaluation of its flight pertonnance are presented.
