Time of Flight

  • Posted on: 23 July 2014
The TOF measures the flight times of charged particles over a given distance to determine their velocity and identify them.

Charged particles in the intermediate momentum range are identified in ALICE by the Time Of Flight (TOF) detector. The time measurement with the TOF, in conjunction with the momentum and track length measured by the tracking detectors is used to calculate the particle mass.
