SUMMARY NOTES

  • Presentations of research activities by CUA, MIT, and AANL
  • see slides for details
  • Discussion about scintillator and readout development
  • for SiPM careful with number of pixels
  • consider LED light monitoring system for monitoring radiation damage over time
  • for SiPM vs. PMT: check magnetic field at EEEMCal location
  • possible development activities: preamp+shaping, larger matrix of SiPMs for large surfaces (for sPHENIX use 4 SiPMs per tower)
  • Goals of near-term prototype tests: light collection efficiency, 2 SiPM/block readout, SRO, noise monitoring


NEXT MEETING: MONDAY 25 JANUARY AT 9AM ET
