The LTCC system will be part of the forward CLAS12 detector and will be used to for pions/kaons discrimination.
The LTCC consists of 6 sectors of lightweight mirrors, light collecting cones, PMTs and magnetic shields.
The sectors are filled with C4F10 gas, providing pion/kaon discrimination from 3.5 to 9 GeV/c.
Each sector contains:
The LTCC has excellent efficiency over the forward angular acceptance available to CLAS12.
