Drift chambers (DCH) constitute an important part of the tracking system of BM@N experiment designed to study the production of baryonic matter at the Nuclotron energies.
The method of particle hit and track reconstruction in the drift chambers is proposed and tested on the BM@N deuteron beam data.
In first step, the radius vs drift time calibration curve is estimated and applied to calculate DCH hit closest approach coordinates. These coordinates are used to construct hits in each DCH under the assumption of track linearity. Hits in both the DCHs are subsequently aligned and fitted to produce global linear track candidates. Eventually the hit and track reconstruction is optimized by the autocalibration method. The coordinate resolutions are estimated from Gaussian fits of the DCH hit residual spectra for different DCH planes. Furthermore, the deuteron beam momentum value is reconstructed in order to check reliability of the employed track reconstruction algorithm.
