Title: High numerical aperture scintillating fibers. Phase II final report

Abstract

Fiber with greater light trapping would increase light yield of fiber trackers, thus permitting use of smaller diameter fibers to produce trackers with better momentum resolution. Higher numerical aperture wavelength shifting fibers would increase light yield from calorimeters and might extend their usable lifetime in high luminosity (high radiation) environments. The successful completion of this research will enable the replacement of an expensive, imported product with a more effective, less expensive, domestic one. This will give an edge to US technology in an area that is currently controlled by Japan.
