Contribution a l'Instrumentation de l'Imageur Cherenkov de l'Experience Spatiale AMS

Abstract : The AMS Experiment will be implemented on the International Space Station in 2007 for 3 years. It will study cosmic rays and should open a new window to look for dark matter and antimatter in the universe. This work is, first, devoted to the experimental study of the Cherenkov (RICH) detector of AMS wich will determine with a good accurancy the velocity and electric charge of the incoming particles. The Front-End electronics test, the prototype operating beam test at CERN are also described. PMT cells construction and PMT cells sorting procedure and detector plane arrangement it was proposed and accepted by the international collaboration. Finally we describe a test bench developpement in order to obtain the refraction index value from silica aerogels
