DIRC, the Particle Identification System for BABAR

Abstract

The Dirc, a novel type of Cherenkov ring imaging device, is the primary hadronic particle identification system for the BABAR detector at the asymmetric B-factory, Pep-II at SLAC. BABAR began taking data with colliding beams mode in late spring 1999. This paper describes the performance of the Dirc during the first 16 months of operation.
