Mr Joshua Bradt (NSCL/MSU)


The Active-Target Time Projection Chamber (AT-TPC) was recently commissioned at MSU using a stable beam of 4He at 3 MeV per nucleon from ReA3 on a target of He+CO2 gas. Tracks were measured in the detector at magnetic field strengths of 0, 0.5 and 1 Tesla. Analysis of the data is underway. This talk will focus on the application of the Kalman filter method to this highly nonlinear problem, and preliminary results will be presented.
