Abstract

This paper presents the results from cosmic ray tests performed in the framework of R&D effort on the forward Resistive Plate Chamber (RPC) for CMS. A double gap RPC of dimensions 50 × 50 cm2 with 2 mm gas gaps was tested. We report data on the use of tetrafluorethane-based gas mixture, with additions of water vapour and SF6. Efficiency, time resolution and cross-talk behaviour of the detector were investigated.
