    摘要: The cooling storage ring (CSR) external-target experiment (CEE) is a spectrometer used in construction to study the properties of nuclear matter inhigh-baryon density regionsat the Heavy-Ion Research Facility in Lanzhou(HIRFL). This study presentsthe design, simulation, manufacturing,and testingof ahalf-size prototype of amulti-wire drift chamber (MWDC) for the CEE. First, theperformance of the MWDCconnected tohome-made electronics was simulated. The results demonstratedthat an energy resolution of 18.5% for 5.9-keVX-rays and a position resolution of 194 um for protons can be achieved bythe current design. Becausethe size of the largest MWDCreached176× 314 cm, a set of 98× 98 cm prototypes was built using the new techniques. The positioning accuracy of the anode wires inthis prototype exceeded20 um. After optimizationusing commercially available electronicdevices, the prototype achievedan energy resolution of 19.7% for a 55FeX-ray source. The CEE-MWDCdetector and electronics were simultaneouslytested. An energy resolution of 22% was achievedfor the 55Fesource;the track residuals were approximately330 umfor the cosmic rays. The results demonstrate that the current design and techniquesmeet the requirementsof the CEE-MWDCarray.
