Simulation of TPC Drift
The animation is large (~5MB) and may take some time to load.
- Side view does not show all electrons. Those with vertical
positions coinciding with the inner field cage are removed to
- End view shows electrons and hits in both halves of the TPC.
- Magnetic field, distortions, and dispersion are ignored.
- Drift velocity of 5 cm/microsecond is assumed.
- Events shown are not real.
