Description

Drift chambers are gaseous ionization detectors that are used to determine the trajectory of a particle traveling through the chamber. In this presentation, the functionality of a drift chamber in a large 5 T magnetic field was studied in the interest of preparing for an upcoming Jefferson Lab experiment to study the structure of the neutron. To examine the effect of magnetic fields on drift chambers, various drift chamber configurations were simulated using the CERN program Garfield.
