The CDF calorimeter upgrade for Run IIb Conference Paper uri icon


  • The physics program at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider will continue to explore the high-energy frontier of particle physics until the commissioning of the LHC at CERN. The luminosity increase provided by the Main Injector will require upgrades beyond those implemented for the first stage (Run IIa) of the Tevatron's Run II physics program. The upgrade of the CDF calorimetry includes: (1) the replacement of the slow gas detectors on the front face of the Central Calorimeter with a faster scintillator version which has a better segmentation, and (2) the addition of timing information to both the Central and EndPlug Electromagnetic Calorimeters to filter out cosmic ray and beam related backgrounds. © 2003 Elsevier B.V.
