SN0247 : TPC: Algorithms, Gain and R-Phi Resolution with P10

Author(s):R. Bossingham
Date:Jun. 12, 1996
Abstract:Previous discussions of TPC r-phi resolution and noise effects with P10 are extended by considering ionization statistics and alternatives to the three-pad algorithm. Reasonable estimates of the required gas gain and obtainable resolution follow; these results are relevant to TPC calibration, tracking, and simulation efforts.
