A Very Compact Crystal Shashlik Electromagnetic Calorimeter for Future HEP Experiments
A very compact crystal based shashlik calorimeter is proposed for future HEP experiments in an extreme harsh radiation environment, such as the proposed HL-LHC. Thin crystal plates are used as the sensitive medium to reduce the light path length and thus the radiation damage effects and the calorimeter cost. A design of such a calorimeter uses tungsten as absorber, LYSO crystals as active medium, and liquid scintillator filled quartz capillaries as WLS to transport scintillating light to photodetectors. Initial calorimeter design and performance of prototype modules are presented. Possible optimizations are discussed.
