The use of transition radiation (TR) as a means of identifying high energy particles has now become a subject of intensive experimental investigations and applications. Our intention is first to study the physics of these phenomena and to describe ways of building detectors which can efficiently identify particles.


... Transition radiation is the emission of a photon that can occur when an energetic charged particle crosses the boundary between two media with different dielectric constants [1,2]. The TRD employs multi-wire proportional chambers (MWPC) with a drift region preceded by a Figure 1. ...
