NA20 (Atherton et al.), CERN-SPS (1980) Secondary energy scan: 60,120,200,300 GeV H2 beam line in the SPS north-area Overall quoted errors Absolute rates: ~15% Ratios: ~5% Needs Pion in addition to kaon production Projectile: p, He, , K etc. Very large range of primary energies [2 GeV,>1 TeV] Target: Air nuclei (nearby isoscalar nuclei acceptable) Full phase space coverage pT distribution not interesting Full coverage of pT important Importance of kaons at high energy (Thanks to S. Robbins as long as plot) NA49

NA49 experimental layout Target Gap TPC S4 counter Vertex TPCs Main TPCs NA49 originally designed as long as Lead-Lead collisions. Also used as long as pp in addition to pA collision physics NA49 Proton-Carbon run ‘P322 group’ consisting of some atmospheric neutrino flux calculators, HARP experimentalists in addition to MINOS experimentalists as long as med collaboration with NA49 in addition to proposed a series of measurements. Received a 1 week test run with a carbon target. It took place in June 2002. 158 GeV run, 500k triggers. 100 GeV run, 160k triggers. 1% interaction length carbon target. Proton selected beam (using Cerenkov). TPCs, HCAL, CD, no TOF. Immediately preceeding run was an NA49 proton-proton run, using a liquid hydrogen target.

NA49 dE/dx fits Particle ID Bins Technique: Follow closely the analysis of p-p data xF in addition to pT bins Some corrections are identical Pion analysis Analysis: Get pion yields as long as proton-proton, followed by pion yields as long as proton-carbon Later, do kaons, antiprotons. Pion extraction straight as long as ward shifts in addition to resolution easy to determine Above xF = 0.5, dE/dx in as long as mation not available near gap. We do have the track distributions. Particular region at low xF where in addition to p dE/dx curves overlap. Use reflection in p-p. Almost no in as long as mation at negative xF

Corrections in addition to errors on pion yields Prospects Pions as long as proton-proton available shortly. Pions as long as proton-carbon follow rapidly after this. Some atmospheric specific changes can be made Use XLAB Feed down required Kaon yields is next priority Extraction not too bad in positives – NK not strongly correlated to K-peak position. Challenge at high xF in negatives. HARP
