Quality control studies of wavelength shifting fibers for a scintillator-based tail-catcher muon-tracker linear collider prototype detector

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Detailed measurements of the wavelength shifting fiber response to a stable and reliable light source are presented. Details about materials, a double reference method, and measurement technique are included. The fibers studied were several hundred KURARAY, Y-11, multiclad, 1.2mm outer diameter wavelength shifting fibers each cut from a reel to about one meter length. The fibers were polished, mirrored, and the mirrors were UV epoxy protected. Each fiber passed quality control requirements before installation. About 94% of the fibers have a response within 1% of the overall mean.
