2006 (English)In: Instruments and experimental techniques (New York), ISSN 0020-4412, E-ISSN 1608-3180, Vol. 49, no 4, 461-467 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
A zero-degree spectrometer for tagging η mesons on the CELSIUS/WASA facility is described, and its characteristics are presented. Tagging of η mesons is performed by detecting 3He ions produced by reaction pd → 3Heη close to the production threshold. The low background level (<2%) is in good agreement with the data obtained earlier on the SATURNE accelerator.
