Abstract [en]

A new measurements of the mu(+) and mu(-)spectra at several atmospheric depths in the momentum range 0.3-20 GeV/c was made by the balloon-borne experiment CAPRICE98. The data were collected during the ascent of the payload on the 28 May 1998 from Fort Summer, New Mexico, USA. This apparatus consists of a magnet spectrometer, with a superconducting magnet and a drift-chamber tracking device, a time of flight scintillator system, a silicon-tungsten imaging calorimeter and a gas ring imaging Cherenkov detector. This gas RICH radiator made it possible to safely identify mu(+) up to 20 GeV/c. This is the first time that the mu(+) component has been measurement over a wide momentum range.
