HCAL2), as well as HCAL1, is used in the trigger formation. A second muon filter is positioned at the downstream end of the spectrometer.
The COMPASS Experiment at CERN
Muons are positively identified when a track can be reconstructed in both sets of trackers placed upstream and downstream of the absorber.
The COMPASS Experiment at CERN
The nominal parameters of the positive muon beam are listed in Table 3.
The COMPASS Experiment at CERN
The maximum muon flux per SPS cycle as a function of the muon momentum, assuming a pµ /pπ ratio corresponding to −80% positive muon polarisation.
The COMPASS Experiment at CERN
All tracks having a POCA too far from the approximated vertex position are discarded; an exception is represented by the scattered muon, which, if present, cannot be removed from the vertex. A vertex is called primary when it contains a beam track.

Accelerator design concept for future neutrino facilities
The E821 experiment, run by the g − 2 collaboration, measured the anomaly frequency of positive and negative muons stored in the AGS ring.
Atomic and optical tests of Lorentz symmetry
We measure the SiPM gain with low-intensity LED light, the position of the MIP peak with muons and the non-linearity by varying the LED light intensity.
Experience with the AHCAL Calibration System in the Test Beam
The reconstruction of muon tracks is based on the measurements of the arrival times of Cherenkov photons at photomultipliers and their positions.
