The CDF forward/backward hadron calorimeter Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • The forward/backward hadron calorimeter of the Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF) is composed of proportional tube chambers and steel plates. It is designed to cover a pseudorapidity region of 2.2 ≤ | η | ≤ 4.2. The readout of this calorimeter is accomplished through sensing the induced charge pulses produced on the chamber's cathode in response to a hadronic cascade shower. We describe the main features of these chambers and present the results of performance tests on the first group of chambers produced. © 1988.
