Construction and commissioning of a hadronic test-beam calorimeter to validate the particle-flow concept at the ILC

  title={Construction and commissioning of a hadronic test-beam calorimeter to validate the particle-flow concept at the ILC},
  author={M. Groll},
This thesis discusses research and development studies performed for a hadronic calorimeter concept for the International Linear Collider (ILC). The requirements for a detector for the ILC are defined by the particle-flow concept in which the overall detector performance for jet reconstruction is optimised by reconstructing each particle individually. The calorimeter system has to have unprecedented granularity to fulfil the task of shower separation. The validation of the shower models used to… 
Low-energetic hadron interactions in a highly granular calorimeter
The CALICE collaboration develops imaging calorimeters for precision measurements at a future electron-positron linear collider. These calorimeters feature a fine granularity in both longitudinal and
Construction and Commissioning of the CALICE Analog Hadron Calorimeter Prototype
An analog hadron calorimeter (AHCAL) prototype of 5.3 nuclear interaction lengths thickness has been constructed by members of the CALICE Collaboration. The AHCAL prototype consists of a 38-layer
Study of the neutralino sector and analysis of the muon response of a highly granular hadron calorimeter at the International Linear Collider
The studies presented in this thesis concern the physics potential and the detector RD the high granularity of the hadronic calorimeter allows to identify and measure the δ-rays produced by a 120 GeV

The CALICE collaboration develops calorimeters designed for the particle flow concept. In this context, data were taken at the CERN test-beam in the years 2006 and 2007. A full calorimeter system
Hadronic shower response in the AHCAL
This note provides an update of the analysis of hadron data described in [1] section 3. The linearity and resolution of the Analog Hadronic Calorimeter (AHCAL) response is measured for hadron induced
Overview of Studies on the SPIROC Chip Characterisation
This note reports the results of extensive measurements of the SPIROC ASIC charaterisation. This chip is forseen to be used in the next generation of the Analogue Hadronic Calorimeter (AHCAL)


Commissioning of an LED calibration and monitoring system for the prototype of a hadronic calorimeter
The anticipated physics program for the International Linear Collider (ILC) requires a highly granular hadronic calorimeter. One option for such a tracking calorimeter is a scintillator-steel
A Scintillator Tile Hadron Calorimeter for the Linear Collider Detector
We demonstrate that the physics potential at a future linear electron positron collider (LC) demands a detector with excellent performance, in particular with unprecedented jet energy resolution.
A Hadron Calorimeter with Resistive Plate Chambers
The application of Particle Flow Algorithms to the measurement of hadronic jets requires calorimeters with extremely fine segmentation. Within the PFA paradigm the role of the hadron calorimeter is
Dedicated very front-end electronics for an ILC prototype hadronic calorimeter with SiPM read-out
The SPIROC chip is a dedicated very front-end electronics for an ILC prototype hadronic calorimeter with Silicon photomultiplier (or MPPC) readout. This ASIC is due to equip a 10,000-channel
