Abstract

A test model has been built to study the performance of prototypes for the ALEPH Time Projection Chamber. The device consists of a solenoid magnet providing a magnetic field up to 1.2 T inside a cylindric field cage of 75 cm diameter and 1.3 m length. It has been used to test two chambers of different design. We describe the setup and present results from measurements with these prototype chambers using laser beams and cosmic ray particles.
