Optimizing the Tracking Efficiency for Cosmic Ray Muon Tomography

Abstract

We have built a detector capable of locating high Z objects in the sampling (middle) region of the detector. As atomic number increases, radiation length rapidly decreases, yielding larger variance in scattering angle. Cosmic ray muon tomography works by tracking muons above the sampling region, and tracking them below the region as well. The difference… (More)
