We present the results of beam tests with high-energy (8-375 GeV) electrons, pions, protons and muons of a sampling calorimeter based on the detection of Cherenkov light produced by shower particles. The detector, a prototype for the very forward calorimeters in the CMS experiment, consists of thin quartz fibers embedded in a copper matrix. Results are given on the light yield of this device, on its energy resolution for electron and hadron detection, and on the signal uniformity and linearity. The signal generation mechanism gives this type of detector unique properties, especially for the detection of hadron showers: narrow, shallow shower profiles and extremely fast signals. These specific properties were measured in detail. The implications for measurements in the high-rate, high-radiation Large Hadron Collider (LHC) environment are discussed.


Electron performance measurements with the ATLAS detector using the 2010 LHC proton-proton collision data
Aad, G.; et. al. (2012-03-01)
Detailed measurements of the electron performance of the ATLAS detector at the LHC are reported, using decays of the Z, W and J/psi particles. Data collected in 2010 at root s = 7 TeV are used, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of almost 40 pb(-1). The inter-alignment of the inner detector and the electromagnetic calorimeter, the determination of the electron energy scale and resolution, and the performance in terms of response uniformity and linearity are discussed. The electron identification, rec...
Frequency Selective Characteristics of a Plasma Layer with Sinusoidally Varying Electron Density Profile
GÜREL, ÇİĞDEM SEÇKİN; Oencue, Emrah (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2009-06-01)
In this study reflection, absorbtion and transmission characteristics of a plasma layer having sinusoidally varying electron number density are analysed. In the analysis, plasma layer is divided into thin subslabs with constant electron number densities. The general frequency selective behavior of the plasma is investigated by varying the plasma parameters, external magnetic field excitation and sinusoidal electron distribution in order to be used in recent plasma applications.
Spectroscopic measurements of electron temperature and electron density in electron beam plasma generator based on collisional radiative model
Goktas, H.; Demir, A.; Kacar, E.; Hegazy, H.; Turan, Raşit; Oke, G.; Seyhan, A. (Informa UK Limited, 2007-01-01)
The current work describes a spectroscopic method for determining the electron temperature and electron density in an electron beam generator using argon spectral lines based on a collisional radiative model. Neutral and first-ionized Ar lines emitted from the electron beam generator are studied experimentally. A collisional radiative code was developed to simulate the Ar (I) and Ar (II) spectral emission and to compare the results with the experimental data for electron density and temperature determinatio...
Optical properties of GaS crystals: Combined study of temperature-dependent band gap energy and oscillator parameters
IŞIK, MEHMET; TUĞAY, EVRİN; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2017-08-01)
Optical parameters of gallium sulfide (GaS) layered single crystals have been found through temperature-dependent transmission and room temperature reflection experiments in the wavelength range of 400-1100 nm. Experimental data demonstrates the coexistence of both optical indirect and direct transitions and the shift of the absorption edges toward lower energies by increasing temperature in the range of 10-300 K. Band gap at zero temperature, average phonon energy and electron phonon coupling parameter for...
Non-contact atomic force microscope in ultra high vacuum using radiation pressure excitation of cantilever with Fabry-Perot interferometer
Karagöz, Ercan; Oral, Ahmet; Department of Physics (2017)
In this study Non-Contact Atomic Force Microscope (NC-AFM) imaging was performed by excitation of the cantilever via radiation pressure in a custom Ultra-High Vacuum (UHV) system. Both the excitation of the cantilever and the measurement of the deflection of the cantilever were done by employing a fiber Fabry-Pérot interferometer obtained by a TiO2 coating of the fiber end. This coating allows for a several times higher interference slope. The second normal mode of the cantilever oscillation, along with the...
