A uranium gas sampling calorimeter has been tested with electrons and pions between 1 and 50 GeV. A comparative evaluation of the response and the resolution for proportional and streamer mode operation of the gas wire chamber detectors is given for two different gas mixtures.
Measurements of R , sphericity and thrust are presented for c.m. energies between 12 and 31.6 GeV. A possible contribution of a t continuum can be ruled out for c.m. energies between 16 and 31 GeV.
The variety of isotopes in cosmic rays allows us to study different aspects of the processes that cosmic rays undergo between the time they are produced and the time of their arrival in the heliosphere. In this paper we present measurements of the isotopic ratios 2H/4He, 3He/4He, 6Li/7Li, 7Be/(9Be+10Be) and 10B/11B in the range 0.2-1.4 GeV of kinetic energy per nucleon. The measurements are based on the data collected by the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer, AMS-01, during the STS-91 flight in 1998 June.
A measurement of the cosmic ray positron fraction $e^{+}/(e^{+}+e^{−})$ in the energy range of 1–30 GeV is presented. The measurement is based on data taken by the AMS-01 experiment during its 10 day Space Shuttle flight in June 1998. A proton background suppression on the order of 10$^{6}$ is reached by identifying converted bremsstrahlung photons emitted from positrons.
