the Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment

The Electron-Muon Ranger (EMR) is a totally 
5
active scintillator detector to be installed 
6
in the muon beam of the Muon Ionization Cooling 
7
Experiment (MICE) - the main R&D project for the 
8
future neutrino factory.

10
It is aimed at measuring properties of low energy 
11
beam composed of muons, electrons and pions performing 
12
the identification particle by particle. 
13

    
14
The EMR is made of 48 intersecting layers. 
15
Each layer consists of 59 triangular scintillator bars. 
16
It is shown that the granularity of the detector makes 
17
it possible to identify tracks and measure particle 
18
ranges and shower shapes. The read-out is based on FPGA 
19
custom made electronics and comercially available modules.

21
Currently it is being built at the University of Geneva 
22
and it is planned to install it in MICE in the first 
23
quarter of 2013.
