A Compact High-Resolution Muon Spectrometer Using Multi-Layer Gas Cherenkov Radiators

  title={A Compact High-Resolution Muon Spectrometer Using Multi-Layer Gas Cherenkov Radiators},
  author={Junghyun Bae and Stylianos Chatzidakis},
In both particle physics and cosmic ray muon applications, a high-resolution muon momentum measurement capability plays a significant role not only in providing valuable information on the properties of subatomic particles but also in improving the utilizability of muons. Currently, muon momentum is estimated by reconstructing the muon path using a strong magnetic field and muon trackers. Alternatively, time-of-flight or multiple Coulomb scattering techniques are less frequently applied… 



Fieldable Muon Momentum Measurement using Coupled Pressurized Gaseous Cherenkov Detectors

Cosmic ray muons present a large part of the radiation background and depending on the application of interest muons can be seen as background noise, e.g., radiation mapping, radiation protection,

A New Semi-Empirical Model for Cosmic Ray Muon Flux Estimation

Cosmic ray muons have emerged as a non-conventional high-energy radiation probe to monitor dense and large objects. Muons are the most abundant cosmic radiation on Earth, however, their flux at sea

Determination of muon momentum in the MicroBooNE LArTPC using an improved model of multiple Coulomb scattering

We discuss a technique for measuring a charged particle's momentum by means of multiple Coulomb scattering (MCS) in the MicroBooNE liquid argon time projection chamber (LArTPC). This method does not

The Effect of Cosmic Ray Muon Momentum Measurement for Monitoring Shielded Special Nuclear Materials

Recently, cosmic ray muons have been considered as a potential high energy radiation probe for monitoring and interrogation of dense, well-shielded special nuclear materials (SNM). Due to their

Muon momentum measurement in ICARUS-T600 LAr-TPC via multiple scattering in few-GeV range

The measurement of muon momentum by Multiple Coulomb Scattering is a crucial ingredient to the reconstruction of νμ CC events in the ICARUS-T600 liquid argon TPC in absence of magnetic field, as in

Detection and imaging of high-Z materials with a muon tomography station using GEM detectors

Muon tomography based on the measurement of multiple scattering of atmospheric cosmic ray muons is a promising technique for detecting and imaging heavily shielded high-Z nuclear materials such as

Energy spectra of atmospheric muons measured with the CAPRICE98 balloon experiment

The measurement of the atmospheric muon spectrum is currently of great interest because of the study of atmospheric neutrinos and the claim of neutrino oscillations made in 1998 by the
