Long Bottom TDA Prototype

Long bottom TDA Prototype. See text on the rest of the page.

This is a picture of the long bottom row Tile Detector Assembly (TDA) development unit. The design as pictured is planned to be used for the four long bottom tiles on the ACD. This particular TDA is 170 cm long, 10 cm wide, and 1 cm thick. Note that the wave shifting fibers are imbedded and glued into the scintillator plastic and are terminated at both ends with a photo-multiplier tube (PMT) coupling. Last Updated: May 20, 2004
