Abstract

A specially developed setup for measuring cumulative-hadron yield at angles of about 180° is described. The methods for filtering the noninteracted beam particles, suppressing the background triggerings caused by interaction of the beam halo with the edges of the trigger counters, and reconstructing secondary tracks in the vicinity of the beam track, which were used under conditions of limited tracking information and a high beam background, are discussed in detail. © 1999 MAHK "HayKa/Interperiodica".
