The ICARUS T600 liquid Argon time projection chamber

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article

Abstract

A full test of the ICARUS T600 liquid Argon detector has been carried out in the year 2001 in Pavia, Italy. The test, extended over about 100 days of continuous operation, has been successful, and has shown that the LAr TPC technology is mature for a large mass experimental programme. A large number of cosmic rays events have been recorded during that test. In this paper we show some results of that test, from the point of view of the imaging capabilities of the technique.
