Track Segments in Hadronic Showers: Calibration Possibilities for a Highly Granular HCAL

Simon, Frank

2009

Abstract: The CALICE collaboration has constructed a highly granular hadronic calorimeter based on small scintillator tiles read out with silicon photomultipliers. With this detector, data was taken at CERN and at Fermilab. The high granularity of the detector allows the identification of minimum-ionizing track segments within hadronic showers, demonstrating the imaging capabilities of particle flow calorimeters. These tracks can be used for the cell-by-cell calibration of such a calorimeter. The possibility to calibrate a complete ILC calorimeter with such track segments in the absence of muons is also investigated.
