Our group has constructed a ring-imaging Cherenkov (RICH) detector with the goal of testing the performance of aerogel tiles in charged particle detectors. In previous work, tiles produced by Aspen Aerogels were tested as radiators in Cherenkov threshold counters and compared to commercial-grade samples. As an extension of this work we built a counter of the RICH type, which is used in practice to extract more particle identification information than threshold counters, and we have studied the images resulting from various aerogel samples.
