Physics with the D0 calorimeter

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The D{null} detector, located at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, Illinois, USA, is a large hermetic detector designed to study the products of {ital p}{ital {anti p}} collisions at a center of mass energy of {radical}s = 1.8 TeV. The centerpiece of the detector is uranium/liquid argon sampling calorimetry, which provides high resolution detection of the physics signatures of interest - electrons, photons, jets and missing transverse energy - over a full solid angle. We discuss below how the calorimeter information is used to detect the final states relevant to the physics we are pursuing, and describe a ... continued below

We discuss below how the calorimeter information is used to detect the final states relevant to the physics we are pursuing, and describe a number of physics processes and results that demonstrate the utility of some of our design choices.
