Crystals for the HHCAL Detector Concept


Crystal calorimeter has traditionally played an important role in precision measurement of electrons and photons in high energy physics experiments. Recent interest in calorimeter technology extends its application to measurement of hadrons and jets with dual readout for both Cherenkov and scintillation light. Optical and scintillation properties of crystal scintillators commonly used in particle physics experiments are reviewed. Technologies to discriminate Cherenkov and scintillation light is elaborated. Candidate crystals for the homogeneous hadronic calorimeter detector concept and their recent development are discussed.
