Title: Calirimeter/absorber optimization for a RHIC dimuon experiment

Abstract

The RD-10 R&D effort on calorimeter/absorber optimization for a RHIC experiment had an extended run in 1991 using the A2 test beam at the AGS. Measurements were made of the leakage of particles behind various model hadron calorimeters. Behavior of the calorimeter/absorber as a muon-identifier was studied. First comparisons of results from test measurements to calculated results using the GHEISHA code were made

  • This paper presents a four-channel, low power-consumption bipolar monolithic preamplifier designed to amplify signals from pads with detector capacitance values from 10 pF to 50 pF used in a RHIC (Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider) dimuon experiment. The circuit utilizes a folded-cascode topology with a novel feedforward compensation that improves the low-capacitance transient response and provides self-biasing without resorting to bandgap or current references. The circuit was fabricated by Harris Semiconductor in the VHF dielectrically isolated complementary bipolar process. Measured data for gamma irradiation to 1.25 MRad are presented.

  • We report on a study of dimuon events produced in p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV, using 0.9 fb{sup -1} of data recorded by the D0 experiment during 2008. Using information from the inner-layer silicon tracking detector, we observe 712 {+-} 462 {+-} 942 events in which one or both muons are produced in the range 1.6 < r {approx}< 10 cm, which is expressed as a fraction (0.40 {+-} 0.26 {+-} 0.53)% of the total dimuon sample. We therefore see no significant excess of muons produced a few centimeters away from the interaction point.
