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 1.14m<sup>2</sup> has been built and installed inside the NOMAD neutrino oscillation experiment at the CERN SPS. The main feature of this detector is the use of 50 ladders, each one 72 cm long, consisting of 12 Hamamatsu detectors, which are the longest such ladders ever built. This article will describe the performance of this detector and its capabilities inside a future νμ(νe)↔ντ neutrino oscillation experiment.
