Abstract

A new experiment, called DeeMe, which is designed to search for μ-e conversions with a sensitivity of (10-14), is in preparation at the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC). It utilizes a high-quality pulsed proton beam from the Rapid Cycling Synchrotron at J-PARC. The detector for DeeMe must tolerate large pulses of prompt charged particles whose instantaneous hit rate is as large as 70 GHz mm-2 in a time width of 200 ns, and detect a single electron that arrives with delayed timing on the order of microseconds. A special wire chamber has been developed with a new dynamic gain control technique that reduces space charge effects. In this paper, we detail the novel detector scheme and operation verification.
