  • Although liquid ionization calorimeters have been mostly used up to now with slow readout, their signals have a fast rise time. However, it is not easy to get this fast component of the pulse out of the calorimeter. For this purpose a new connection scheme of the electrodes, the ''electrostatic transformer,'' is presented. This technique reduces the detector capacitance while keeping the number of channels at an acceptable level. Also it allows the use of transmission lines to bring signals from the electrodes to the preamplifiers which could be located in an accessible area. With room temperature liquids the lengthmore » of these cables can be short, keeping the added noise at a reasonable level. Contributions to the error on the energy measurement from pile up and electronics noise are studied in detail. Even on this issue, room temperature liquids (TMP/TMS) are found to be competitive with cold liquid argon at the expense of a moderately higher gap voltage. 5 refs., 9 figs., 2 tabs.« less
  • A superconductive resonant cavity is energized with radio frequency energy. The cavity includes a tuning stub having a piece of semiconductor material mounted on the end. An incoming communication signal modulates a light source which is optically coupled to the semiconductor by a fiber optic bundle. piece of semiconductor material mounted on the end. An incoming communication signal modulates a light source which is optically coupled to the semiconductor by a fiber optic bundle. This varies the dielectric constant of the semiconductor which, in turn, varies the resonant frequency of the cavity. An angle modulation demodulator senses the frequency ofmore » the radio frequency oscillations in the cavity and produces a replica of the communication signal with improved signal to noise ratio.« less
