[CRD112] A Multivariate Approach for Identification of Light Nuclear Isotopes of the Cosmic-Rays with Magnetic Spectrometers


  • Wooyoung JANG

Primary authors



In this work, we will show a way to distinguish various kinds of light nuclear isotopes in cosmic-rays using multivariate approach. Magnetic spectrometers are typically equipped with a magnet, a tracking system and a time-of-flight. This combination of apparatus can be used to reconstruct mass information of incoming charged particles from measurements of rigidity, speed and charge so that we can identify the incoming particles by their masses. A multivariate approach using all the above information can be helpful to maximize separation power of identification among the light isotopes.
