Abstract
The scintillating optical fiber trajectory (SOFT) detector, which is the hodoscope for the cosmic ray isotope spectrometer (CRIS) on the NASA advanced composition explorer (ACE) satellite, was calibrated using 155 MeV/n He, Li, C, N, O, Ne, and Ar at the Michigan State University National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL). The instrument consists of three hodoscope fiber planes and one trigger plane which are read out by an image intensified CCD camera system and by intensified photodiodes respectively. The instrument is described and the detection efficiency and spatial resolution is presented.
