Rad Hard Active Media For Calorimeters

Abstract

Zero-degree calorimeters have limited space and extreme levels of radiation. A simple, low cost, radiation hard design uses tungsten metal as the absorber and a suitable liquid as the Čerenkov radiator. In other applications a PPAC (Parallel Plate Avalanche Counter) operating with a suitable atmosphericpressure gas is an attractive active material for a… (More)
