The Time-Of-Flight array of the ALICE experiment will provide particle identification in the central rapidity region and in the intermediate momentum range between 0.5 GeV/c and 2.5 GeV/c through high precision time measurements. It is based on Multigap Resistive Plate Chambers with excellent intrinsic time resolution. R&D work carried out during the last two years, final detector design and expected performance are briefly reviewed.

Abstract

The Time-Of-Flight array of the ALICE experiment will provide particle identification in the central rapidity region and in the intermediate momentum range between 0.5 GeV/c and 2.5 GeV/c through high precision time measurements. It is based on Multigap Resistive Plate Chambers with excellent intrinsic time resolution. R&D work carried out during the last two years, final detector design and expected performance are briefly reviewed.
