Abstract

Results are presented on tests in a 5 GeV/c hadron beam of a high-resolution tracking detector constructed from 20-mu-m diameter glass capillaries filled with liquid scintillator. Details are given of the techniques used to eliminate noise in the readout system and to reduce cross-talk between capillaries. A spatial resolution of 15-mu-m is obtained.
