Compton Cherenkov Detector Development for ILC Polarimetry

Bartels, Christoph ; Helebrant, Christian ; Käfer, Daniela ; List, Jenny


Abstract: In order to fully exploit the physics potential of the ILC, it will be necessary to measure (and control) beam parameters to a permille level precision. In case of the beam polarisation, this can only be achieved with dedicated high energy Compton polarimeters and by improving the detector linearity, as well as the calibration of the analyzing power. This note summarises results of an early testbeam period with the Cherenkov detector of the SLD polarimeter, linearity measurements of readout electronics and photodetectors and compares simulation results of the SLD Cherenkov detector with those of a new `U-shaped' prototype.
