The muon and neutral hadron detector of the BaBar experiment for the PEP-II Asymmetric B-factory at SLAC uses Resistive Plate Counters (RPCs) as active detectors. A large fraction of the total system, which consists of approximately 800 chambers for an overall surface of 2000 m�, has already been built and tested in cosmic rays. Preliminary results of the operating characteristics with a new non-flammable and environmentally safe gas mixture are reported. � 1998 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved. 1
