Experimental Apparatus

The experiment described here has been conducted at the M20B channel of TRIUMF (Canada's national meson facility) located on the University of British Columbia campus in Vancouver, Canada. A novel target system for films of solid hydrogen isotopes and other gases was developed, and detectors which take advantage of the thin film targets have been utilized. In this chapter, we describe the muon beam, the cryogenic target system including target characterization, and detection systems.
