Characterization of three LYSO crystal batches
We report on three LYSO crystal batches characterized at the Caltech crystal laboratory for future HEP experiments: 25 20 cm long crystals for the SuperB experiment; 12 13 cm long crystals for the Mu2e experiment and 623 14×14×1.5 mm^3 plates with five holes for a LYSO/W Shashlik matrix for a beam test at Fermilab. Optical and scintillation properties measured are longitudinal transmittance, light output and FWHM energy resolution. Correlations between these properties are also investigated.
