Studies of Wavelength-Shifting Liquid Filled Quartz Capillaries for Use in a Proposed CMS Calorimeter


Studies have been done and continue on the design and construction of a Shashlik detector using Radiation hard quartz capillaries filled with wavelength shifting liquid to collect the scintillation light from LYSO crystals for use as a calorimeter in the Phase II CMS upgrade at CERN. The work presented here focuses on the studies of the capillaries and liquids that would best suit the purpose of the detector. Comparisons are made of various liquids, concentrations, and capillary construction techniques will be discussed.

And thanks to Jay LaVerne of the Notre Dame Radiation Lab for his help in exposing our sample to high doses of gamma radiation. Thanks to Eljen Technologies and especially Chuck Hurbut for making the liquids at various concentration we needed to complete this work. And special thanks to the people at Polymicro Technologies for making the blank radiation hard quartz capillaries to our specification. We thank the National Science Foundation for its support of this work under grant NSF-PHY-1312842.
