HADES is a versatile magnetic spectrometer aimed at studying dielectron production in pion, proton and heavy-ion-induced collisions. Its main features include a ring imaging gas Cherenkov detector for electron-hadron discrimination, a tracking system consisting of a set of 6 superconducting coils producing a toroidal field and drift chambers and a...

The High‐Acceptance Di‐Electron Spectrometer installed at GSI Darmstadt is a second generation experiment to study production of dielectron pairs from proton, pion and nucleus induced reactions at the SIS∕BEVALAC energy regime. During period 2002–4 medium‐resolution data have been taken with HADES on the light C+C system at 1 and 2 AGeV. The data a...

The invariant-mass spectrum of e+e- pairs produced in 12C+12C collisions at an incident energy of 2 GeV per nucleon has been measured for the first time. The measured pair production probabilities span over 5 orders of magnitude from the pi(0)-Dalitz to the rho/omega invariant-mass region. Dalitz decays of pi(0) and eta account for all the yield up...
Article
We report the first observation of the doubly-magic nucleus 100Sn. This isotope was produced by nuclear fragmentation of 124Xe projectiles at 1095 A MeV using the heavy-ion synchrotron SIS at GSI, Darmstadt. The projectile fragments were separated in flight with the projectile fragment separator FRS and identified by measuring event by event magnet...

Electrons and positrons from pi0 decays have been measured for C+C collisions at 1AGeV beam energy. Reconstructed e+e--pairs from pi0-Dalitz decays have been used as a calibrated electron source for the investigation of Cherenkov rings detected in a hadron blind RICH with CsI-based photo cathode. The measured ring properties are in good agreement w...

We report the results of an experiment to measure the overall photon detection efficiency of the HADES RICH. Cherenkov radiation from light carbon ions was used to produce single photons in the accessible wavelength region between 145 and 220nm. The photon detector response to single photons is described by a parametrisation. The total light yield...

The setup in the UHV box coater for the HADES RICH mirrors was modified to deposit VUV reflective layers on large area substrates. These substrates were made of 2mm thick float glass with 87cm spherical curvature and a perimeter of 86cm. A good uniformity of the coatings could be obtained by a larger source-to-substrate distance of 155cm. Impurity...

A Ring Imaging CHerenkov detector is used in the HADES spectrometer to identify e+e− pairs from meson decays produced in hadron and heavy-ion induced collisions at a few A GeV incident energy. The full event pattern information of 28 272 pads has to be transferred within to an image processor, where the typical lepton rings have to be identified wi...

The readout electronics for the HADES RICH uses new concepts for the data transport and a multilevel trigger scheme for online data reduction. We have developed two types of modules for the readout of the RICH detector that is used for lepton identification in the HADES spectrometer. The first one is a mixed analog and digital frontend module that...

The production of energetic π− at 0° has been measured in Ne+NaF and Ni+Ni collisions with incident energies between 1.3 and 2AGeV. In Ne+NaF collisions the investigation was extended to extreme subthreshold processes with lab momenta up to 4.5 GeV/c. In both systems at all incident energies the π− production cross sections deviate in a systematic...

CsI photocathodes were studied in order to evaluate their potential use as large photoconverters in RICH detectors for the PID system at ALICE (LHC in heavy ion collider mode). It has been demonstrated that a quantum efficiency comparable to the reference value obtained on small samples can be obtained on CsI layers evaporated on large pad electrod...

Article
Subthreshold p andK – and energetic – production was studied in Ne + NaF, Cu, Sn and Bi, and in Ni + Ni collisions with incident energies between 1.6 and 2 GeV/u. The measured cross sections indicate a dominant contribution of baryonic resonances. This is also consistent with a generalized scaling behaviour of the cross sections with the energy ava...
