Abstract:The sensitivity of the STAR TPC has been measured as a function of voltage. Using a cosmic ray trigger, we have studied the behavior with The analysis of this data can be used to estimate how well the TPC can detect particles with unusual charges. A consistency test shows that the gain was set correctly.
