A portable telescope based on the ALIBAVA system for test beam studies

A scientific article describing a new test beam telescopebuilt using the Alibava System Classic for data acquisition, has just been published in the peer-reviewed journal “Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research”.

This test beam telescope system isable to reconstruct the track of the incident particles with reasonable precision and to determine the position of the beam particle interactions in a device under test (DUT), in order to test its tracking capabilities.

The telescope hardware is based on the existing ALIBAVA readout system and has been developed to be able to host several ALIBAVA daughter- and mother-boards: this way many tracking planes can be installed in order to realize a telescope.
