From CRID to DIRC

Abstract

The Barrel CRID detector has been operating successfully at SLD for the past seven years. It is an important tool for SLD physics analyses. The aper describes results based on quantities such as the Cherenkov quality factor, No, of the device, fluid transparency, electron lifetime, single electron detection efficiency, anode wire ageing, TMAE purity, long term stability of the gas refraction index, liquid radiator transparency, Cherenkov angle resolution and the number of photoelectrons observed per ring. The DIRC detector is a novel particle identification detector to be used in the BaBar detector at SLAC. It is presently in its construction stage. The paper describes some of its most important R&D results.
