Particle Identification

The identification of charged particles with extreme accuracy is one of the key requirements for unvealing many aspects of the physics program envisaged by the PANDA experiment.

Therefore the PANDA Detector will be equipped with various dedicated high developed particle identification (PID) systems providing the ability of classifying particle species over the whole kinematic range in addition to dE/dx measurements from tracking and information from the electromagnetic calorimetry.
