The PHENIX PbSc calorimeter and its performance

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The authors have recently completed the production of the 15552 channel PbSc Electromagnetic calorimeter for the PHENIX experiment at RHIC. The design features a single 4 tower module which is repeated throughout and which was produced with a number of QC steps designed to achieve consistent, large light yield in all channels. They present results on uniformity of the calorimeter, accuracy of a cosmic muon based precalibration scheme and test beam performance.
