Momentum Range


Pions with initial transverse momenta of 50 MeV/c (within ) must penetrate all 3 layers of the SVT.


The TPC momentum cut off is about 150 MeV/c. A 50 MeV/c lower limit gives a significant enhancement to STAR's capabilities.


The SVT design as specified in Chapter 22 will detect pions of momenta 50 MeV/c.
