Abstract

Since 1995 the H1 experiment at HERA is operating a Forward Proton Spectrometer (FPS) employing the HERA machine magnets adjacent to the interaction zone as spectrometer magnets. The FPS consists of four stations, two vertical stations and two horizontal stations. Scattered protons are detected in pairs of stations behind the interaction point with scintillating fiber hodoscopes. The scintillating fibers are readout by Position-Sensitive Photomultipliers (PSPM) in the case of the vertical stations and by Micro-Channel Photomultipliers (MCPM) for the horizontal stations.
