Abstract

Coherent arrays of glass capillaries filled with liquid scintillator offer interesting possibilities in high resolution particle tracking. We describe the preparation and filling of capillary targets with 20 and 120-mu-m diameter lightguides, as well as the performance of capillary targets in a 5 GeV test beam exposure. Considerations are given concerning choice and optimization of solvents with high refractive index and fluorescence dyes. Furthermore results of systematic studies of liquid scintillators in beam tests are reported.
