The Shower-maximum detector for CDF II

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Shower-Maximum Detector (SMD) of the CDF Plug Upgrade EM calorimeter has been tested at the 1996 - 97 test beam. Calibration of the SMD has been performed using both beam positron response and wire-source data, with both calibrations agreeing to within 5% . The e{sup +} position resolution was studied by fitting the shower profile to find its center and comparing it with the projected track from the drift chambers. A position resolution of (38/E + 0.4) mm for positrons in the energy range 10 - 180 GeV has been obtained.
