Abstract

A Cr-39 stack equipped with a passive temperature control shielding was exposed to primary cosmic radiation in a balloon flight from Trapani (Sicily) to Huelva (Spain). Measured temperature excursions of the material were less than 16°C. Best etching conditions were established for the VH relativistic component and a charge resolution of 0.44 charge units achieved. © 1986.
