Abstract

Tracking performance of the scintillating fiber detector (SciFi) in the K2K experiment was studied. SciFi was used to reconstruct charged particles produced in neutrino interactions in the near detector. The track reconstruction algorithm and the performance of SciFi was also described after three years of operation.
