    Calibration Issues for the CALICE 1m3 AHCAL

    Full text link
    The CALICE collaboration investigates diferent technology options for highly granular calorimeters for detectors at a future electron-positron collider. One of the devices constructed and tested by this collaboration is a 1m3 prototype of a scintillator-steel sampling calorimeter for hadrons with analogue readout (AHCAL). The light from 7608 small scintillator cells is detected with silicon photomultipliers. The AHCAL has been successfully operated during electron and hadron test-beam measurements at DESY, CERN, and Fermilab since 2005. One of main tasks for the successful data taking is to establish procedures for the equalization of cell responses and calibration of such a large number of channels.Comment: Proceedings of the International Workshop on Future Linear Colliders LCWS11, Granada, Spain, 2011. 8 pages, 8 figure

    The NOvA experiment is a long-baseline neutrino experiment designed to make measurements to determine the neutrino mass hierarchy, neutrino mixing parameters and CP violation in the neutrino sector. In order to make these measurements the NOvA collaboration has designed a highly distributed, synchronized, continuous digitization and readout system that is able to acquire and correlate data from the Fermi lab accelerator complex (NuMI), the NOvA near detector at the Fermi lab site and the NOvA far detector which is located 810 km away at Ash River, MN. This system has unique properties that let it fully exploit the physics capabilities of the NOvA detector. The design of the NOvA DAQ system and its capabilities are discussed in this paper

    Charged particle production in deep-inelastic ep scattering is measured with the H1 detector at HERA. The kinematic range of the analysis covers low photon virtualities, 5 LT Q(2) LT 100 GeV2, and small values of Bjorken-x, 10(-4) LT x LT 10(-2). The analysis is performed in the hadronic centre-of-mass system. The charged particle densities are measured as a function of pseudorapidity (n(*)) and transverse momentum (p(T)(*)) in the range 0 LT n(*) LT 5 and 0 LT p(T)(*) LT 10 GeV in bins of x and Q(2). The data are compared to predictions from different Monte Carlo generators implementing various options for hadronisation and parton evolutions
