Abstract

The NA49 experiment designed for the investigation of hadron production in the most violent Pb + Pb interactions at the CERN SPS was discussed. The main features were large acceptance tracking and particle identification using time projection chambers (TPC). The charged particles in the forward hemisphere of the reaction were identified from the measurement of their energy loss dE/dx in the TPC gas.
