SN0385 : Measurement of Neutral Strange Particle in the FTPC

Abstract:This note presents a feasibility study to determine whether the Forward TPCs (FTPCs) can measure V0s in RHIC Au+Au events. 226 Hijing events were simulated to address issues of acceptance and efficiency, and to generate mass plots with the signal and noise. We demonstrate that the FTPCs are capable of measureing V0s with a momentum reconstruction method.
