Abstract

The Cosmic Ray Energetics and Mass experiment at the International Space Station (ISS-CREAM) is developed for studying the origin, acceleration and propagation mechanism of high energy cosmic rays. The Top and Bottom Counting Detectors (TCD/BCD), sub-detectors of the ISS-CREAM instrument, are developed for electron/γ-ray physics. The TCD/BCD help distinguish electrons from protons by comparing the hit and shower width distributions for electrons and protons. The e/p separation capability of the TCD/BCD is studied by using the GEANT3 simulation package, and optimal parameters for the e/p separation are obtained.
