A quartz detector has been constructed to be part of the trigger system for the Super High Momentum Spectrometer (SHMS). The SHMS will play a pivotal role in carrying out the 12-GeV physics program at Hall-C Jefferson Lab. The quartz hodoscope consists of twenty one fused silica bars. Each bar is 125 cm long, 5.5 cm wide, 2.5 cm thick, and is viewed by a UV-sensitive PMT on each end. The quartz hodoscopeâ€™s task is to provide a clean detection of charged particles, a high level of background suppression, and an accurate tracking efficiency determination. Initial test results of the quartz detectors which include light yield and position resolution will be presented.
