Single Charged Particle Identification in Nuclear Emulsion using Multiple Coulomb Scattering Method
- Development of particle identification technique for single charged particles such as Ξ- hyperon, proton, K- and π- mesons is on-going by measuring multiple Coulomb scattering in nuclear emulsion. We generated several thousands of tracks of the single charged particles in nuclear emulsion stacks with GEANT 4 simulation and obtained second difference in constant Sagitta Method. We found that recognition of Ξ- hyperon from π- mesons is well satisfied, although that from K- and proton are a little difficult. On the other hand, the consistency of second difference of real Ξ- hyperon and pi meson tracks and simulation results were also confirmed.
