Main Injector Particle Production Experiment



Cutaway View

This is a cutaway view of the experiment, with tracks from a simulated event. The beam particles enter from the upper left, where they hit a target just in front of the TPC, which sits inside the Jolly Green Giant magnet. Following the TPC there is a Cerenkov counter, a Time of Flight wall, a second magnet called Rosie, a Ring Imaging Cerenkov counter, and a Neutral Calorimeter. Interspersed between these detectors are a set of Drift Chambers, in red.
