The energy loss of relativistic cosmic ray muons in plastic scintillator

Jones, I. S. (1969) The energy loss of relativistic cosmic ray muons in plastic scintillator. Masters thesis, Durham University.



The energy loss for a small area plastic phosphor scintillation counter as a function of particle momentum has been investigated using the Durham Mk 3 Spectrograph with the intention of clarifying the position regarding the decrease in energy loss for particles of momenta greater than 10 Gev(_c) recently predicted "by Tsytovitch. The results0are consistent with the theory of Sternheiraer and show only a slight decrease in the momentum range 10 GeV(_c) to 100 GeV(_c) which is much less than that predicted by Tsytovitch.
