    Highly Granular Calorimeters: Technologies and Results

    Full text link
    The CALICE collaboration is developing highly granular calorimeters for experiments at a future lepton collider primarily to establish technologies for particle flow event reconstruction. These technologies also find applications elsewhere, such as detector upgrades for the LHC. Meanwhile, the large data sets collected in an extensive series of beam tests have enabled detailed studies of the properties of hadronic showers in calorimeter systems, resulting in improved simulation models and development of sophisticated reconstruction techniques. In this proceeding, highlights are included from studies of the structure of hadronic showers and results on reconstruction techniques for imaging calorimetry. In addition, current R&D activities within CALICE are summarized, focusing on technological prototypes that address challenges from full detector system integration and production techniques amenable to mass production for electromagnetic and hadronic calorimeters based on silicon, scintillator, and gas techniques.Comment: 11 pages, 16 figures, the proceeding for the overview talk presented at the conference Instrumentation for Colliding Beam Physics 2017 (INSTR17), Novosibirsk, Russia, 27 February - 3 March 2017, to be published in JINS
