Title: Initial performance studies of a general-purpose detector for multi-TeV physics at a 100 TeV pp collider

Abstract

This paper describes simulations of detector response to multi-TeV physics at the Future Circular Collider (FCC-hh) or Super proton-proton Collider (SppC) which aim to collide proton beams with a centre-of-mass energy of 100 TeV. The unprecedented energy regime of these future experiments imposes new requirements on detector technologies which can be studied using the detailed geant4 simulations presented in this paper. The initial performance of a detector designed for physics studies at the FCC-hh or SppC experiments are described with an emphasis on measurements of single particles up to 33 TeV in transverse momentum. Furthermore, the granularity requirements for calorimetry are investigated using the two-particle spatial resolution achieved for hadron showers.

  • This paper describes simulations of detector response to multi-TeV physics at the Future Circular Collider (FCC-hh) or Super proton-proton Collider (SppC) which aim to collide proton beams with a centre-of-mass energy of 100 TeV. The unprecedented energy regime of these future experiments imposes new requirements on detector technologies which can be studied using the detailed GEANT4 simulations presented in this paper. The initial performance of a detector designed for physics studies at the FCC-hh or SppC experiments is described with an emphasis on measurements of single particles up to 33 TeV in transverse momentum. The reconstruction of hadronic jets hasmore » also been studied in the transverse momentum range from 50 GeV to 26 TeV. The granularity requirements for calorimetry are investigated using the two-particle spatial resolution achieved for hadron showers.« less
  • The Multi-Purpose Detector (MPD) is designed to study heavy-ion collisions at the Nuclotron-based heavy Ion Collider fAcility (NICA) at JINR, Dubna. Its main components located inside a superconducting solenoid are a tracking system composed of a silicon microstrip vertex detector followed by a large volume time-projection chamber, a time-of-flight system for particle identification and a barrel electromagnetic calorimeter. A zero degree hadron calorimeter is designed specifically to measure the energy of spectators. In this paper, all parts of the apparatus are described and their tracking and particle identification parameters are discussed in some detail.
  • The authors have been interested for many years in decays near the proton drip line. In light nuclei the low Coulomb barrier permits the emission of very low-energy protons either at the drip line or following beta decay to states above the proton separation energy. To observe such events has led to development of low-energy proton detectors which has culminated with the construction of six triple telescopes ({Delta}E(gas)- {Delta}E(gas)- E(Si)) in a ball arrangement covering {approximately}25% of 4{pi}. The operating parameters and some initial physics experiments which are being pursued will be discussed. Additionally, the full potential of this detectormore » will be explored.« less
