Operational experience with the DIRC detector

Abstract : The {\sc Dirc}, a novel type of Cherenkov ring imaging device, is the primary hadronic particle identification system for the $BABAR$ detector at the asymmetric B-factory, {\sc Pep-II} at SLAC. It is based on total internal reflection and uses long, rectangular bars made from synthetic fused silica as Cherenkov radiators and light guides. $BABAR$ began taking data with colliding beams in late spring 1999. This paper describes the performance of the {\sc Dirc} during the first 2.5 years of operation.
