Effective longitudinal segmentation of shashlik calorimeters can be achieved taking advantage of the compactness and reliability of silicon photomultipliers. These photosensors can be embedded in the bulk of the calorimeter and are employed to design very compact shashlik modules that sample electromagnetic and hadronic showers every few radiation lengths.(More)
Thin glass foils are nowadays considered good substrates for lightweight focusing optics, especially for X-ray telescopes. The desired shape can be imparted to the foils by hot slumping, a process that replicates the shape of a slumping mould. During thermal slumping, when the glass and the mould come into contact, ripples in the glass surface appear(More)
A compact readout based on Silicon PhotoMultipliers can provide longitudinal segmentation to shashlik calorimeters. Direct fiber-photosensor coupling prevents the fiber bundling and the ultra-compactness of new generation SiPMs allows to embed the readout in the bulk of the calorimeter. Possible applications for this detector are high granularity devices(More)
