Liquid scintillating fiber calorimetry prototype Conference Paper uri icon


  • A full size, liquid scintillating fiber spaghetti, hadronic calorimeter has been constructed and tested using cosmic rays at Texas A&M University. The purpose of this R&D research is to find practical solutions for detectors to be used in extremely high radiation environments. The details of design and construction of this module are presented. The advantages of using liquid scintillating materials were investigated. Relevant subjects are addressed. Cosmic ray test results are compared with that of GEANT Monte Carlo simulations. Over all, they agree with each other well. The conclusion is that calorimeters utilizing this technique can be used in high radiation environments such as SSC colliding area.
