Abstract: The time-of-flight detector of the Beijing Spectrometer Ⅲ(BESⅢ) is built with long and narrow plastic scintillator bars, with each being 2.3m long and 6cm wide. The time resolution of prototypes wrapped with aluminum film has been studied for various thickness of the scintillator using a test beam at the Institute of High Energy Physics in Beijing, China. In this paper, the position-dependent time resolution of the scintillator with a thickness of 4cm, 5cm and 6cm is presented and compared with a Monte Carlo simulation, the results show that the bar with a thickness of 5cm has the best performance.
