Abstract

A Hadron Blind Detector (HBD) is being developed for an upgrade of the PHENIX experiment at RHIC. The HBD is a windowless Cherenkov detector, operated with pure CF 4 in a special proximity focus configuration. The detector consists of a 50cm long radiator, directly coupled to a triple GEM detector which has a Csl photocathode evaporated on the top surface of the upper-most GEM foil, and a pad readout at the bottom of the GEM stack. Detailed studies of the detector performance, including hadron rejection, figure of merit, N 0, number of photoelectrons and efficiency are presented. These studies include measurements performed with a UV lamp, an 55Fe x-ray source and an 241Am alpha source. Results will also be given on aging studies of the GEM foils and the CsI photocathode in pure CF 4.
