Abstract

A target consisting of four passive layers of boron carbide and five layers of silicon microstrip detectors (NOMAD-STAR) with a total surface of 1.14 m(2) was installed inside the NOMAD neutrino oscillation experiment at the CERN SPS. A sample of 45 charm mesons (with 22 background) was obtained from about 11500 nu(mu) charged current interaction in NOMAD-STAR. The efficiencies obtained from this search demonstrate the capabilities of silicon microstrip detectors for charm particle identification at a future neutrino factory.
