DRDC proposal P6

P6. Study of Liquid Argon Dopants for LHC Hadron Calorimetry CERN/DRDC/P6). CERN/Stockholm.

Status: Finished

Spokesman: V. Vuillemin

Abstract: Hadron Calorimetry based on the Liquid Argon Ionisation Chamber technique is one of the choice techniques for LHC-experimentation. We propose to study in a systematic way the effect of dopants to LAr to improve on drift speed "Fast Liquid Argon") and on its response to densely ionising particles "Compensated Liquid Argon"). We describe the measurements and monitoring of the critical parameters, including the use of IR absorption spectroscopy.
