Studies have been done and continue on the design and construction of a Shashlik detector using Radiation hard quartz capillaries filled with wavelength shifting liquid to collect the scintillation light from LYSO crystals for use as a calorimeter in the Phase II CMS upgrade at CERN. The work presented here focuses on the studies of the capillaries and(More)
We have been studying ways in which the light from several optical fibers that transmit light from scintillating tiles can be mixed and combined a single Silicon Photo Multiplier (SiPM). The purpose for mixing is to prevent a single high intensity fiber from saturating an area of the SiPM and thus causing an inaccurate reading of the overall light(More)
