The Main Injector Particle Production Experiment at Fermilab
The MIPP experiment measures charged particle production in interactions of pions, kaons, protons, and their anti-particles at momenta ranging from 5 to 120 GeV/c on cryogenic and solid targets spanning the periodic table from hydrogen to uranium and on the composite NuMI neutrino production target. Particle tracks are measured with a TPC and 24 wire-chamber planes and particles are identified Ckov, and RICH detectors. The experiment performance, recent results from data taken in 2005 and 2006 and an upgrade through TPC dE/dx, ToF, future run plan will be presented.
