kalicyphoto2_sm.jpgA radially-compact subsystem providing particle identification (e/π, π/K, K/p) over a wide momentum range is an essential requirement for several current and future experiments in Nuclear Physics. With a radial size of only a few cm, a detector based on Detection of Internally Reflected Cherenkov light (DIRC) principle is a very attractive option. Three DIRC R&D programs will be used to present interesting challenges of DIRC technology but also to show great example of exploring synergies between different Nuclear Physics experiments and collaborations.

Refreshments served at 3:45 PM
