Calorimetry with the ePIC Project

Oct 31, 2023, 6:00 PM
Talk in workshop 1 "QCD at the EIC: Experimental Opportunities and Detector Challenges" Parallel workshop 1


David Hornidge (Mount Allison University)


This talk will cover some of the electromagnetic calorimetry plans for the ePIC detector with a concentration on the design of the central barrel calorimeter based on the current GlueX BCAL at JLab. The requirements (as specified in the ePIC Project) include energy resolution of 10%/$\sqrt{E} \oplus (2-3)$% and electron-pion suppression great than $10^3$, which will be comfortably met by a novel imaging calorimeter that combines AstroPix silicon sensors for position resolution and lead-scintillating-fiber matrix for energy resolution. Specific Canadian contributions to the EIC effort will also be presented.
