Description

The large-scale coordinate-tracking detector TREK for registration of near-horizontal muon flux generated by ultrahigh energy primary particles is being developed in MEPhI. Detector is based on the multiwire drift chambers from the neutrino experiment at the IHEP U-70 accelerator, their key advantages are a large effective area (1.85 m2), good coordinate and angular resolution with a small number of measuring channels. Detector will be operated as a part of the experimental complex NEVOD, in particular, jointly with Cherenkov water detector (CWD) with volume of 2000 cubic meters and coordinate detector DECOR. The first part of the detector representing two coordinate planes of 8 drift chambers in each (CTUDC) has been developed and has been mounted on the opposite sides of CWD. It has the same principle of joint operation with NEVOD-DECOR triggering system and the same drift chambers alignment, so main features of the detector TREK will be examined. Results of a cross-calibration of the CTUDC and coordinate-tracking detector DECOR and a joint work with NEVOD-DECOR complex are presented. Propositions concerning construction of the full-scale tracking detector TREK are discussed.
