Publication Abstract: The Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (JLab) has undertaken the 12 GeV Upgrade to double the accelerating energy of its electron beam. This attracts many interesting proposals to probe the quark-gluon nature of nuclear matter at higher energy, therefore a new set of equipment is required. Experimental Hall C of JLab has planned to construct a new Super High Momentum Spectrometer (SHMS) to replace the existing Short Orbit Spectrometer (SOS). The University of Regina is assigned to construct the Heavy Gas Cerenkov (HGC) Detector as part of the SHMS focal plane detectors. This detector will be used as critical component to provide reliable pion/kaon separation between 3-11 GeV/c central momenta in the SHMS experimental program. In this thesis, we will report the design, quality control studies and simulated expected performances of the HGC detector.
