CHERCAM: the Cherenkov imager of the CREAM experiment, results in Z=1 test beams

Abstract : The CREAM experiment investigates the high energy spectrum of nuclear elements from H to Fe in the cosmic ray flux up to $10^{15}$ eV, with an instrument designed to achieve individual elements separation over the whole mass range. A proximity focused Cherenkov imager, CHERCAM (CHERenkov CAMera), will provide both a good topological signature (Cherenkov ring) for downgoing Z=1 particles, and a charge independent individual element separation through the considered range of nuclear charges. It will be implemented in the forthcoming CREAM flight 3. The contribution reports on the CHERCAM main features and on the preliminary results from in-beam tests at CERN.
