Abstract:

Reliable tracking in a high rate hadronic environment is a challenge for detector construction and operation. The extensive R&D program triggered by this problem led to the invention of micro pattern detectors which were foreseen to be used in many new HEP experiments. HERA-B is the first experiment to build a large scale system of this kind. I will report about the outcome of this enterprise and the (final) data taken with the detector.
