The SMRD subdetector at the T2K near detector station
The T2K long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment is running in Japan. The primary goals of the T2K are measurement of the mixing angle θ3, and precise measurements of the mixing angle23 and of the mass difference θ232Δ,m2 23. The installation of the near detector complex was completed and first data were already registered. This article presents operation of the Side Muon Range Detector, a component of the Off-Axis near detector. Detector concept and implementation are presented, followed by a description of cosmic muon track reconstruction algorithm and finally current status. PACS numbers: 29.40.Mc, 85.60.Gz.
