Outline

  • Why a two layer solution

  • Limitations - requirements

  • “Conclusion”


Energy loss of charged particles bethe bloch equation

Energy loss of charged particles: Bethe-Bloch equation

Proposed scenario

Proposed scenario

  • Two layers detector:

  • Simplification

Ë=f(D E1 )+ g(D E2)

the estimated final energy is proportional to the energy deposited in each layer

protons of 200MeV

deposit an energy of:

1mm LaBr3= 1.49±0.23 MeV

20mm LaBr3= 31.32±1.13 MeV

200±50MeV

(sE/E=25%)

200±10MeV

(sE/E=5%)


First conclusions

First Conclusions

  • If not fully stopped, two DE-detectors are required

  • A too thin detector gives bad estimation of the energy leading to bad resolution first detector should be thick in order to totally absorb protons up to rather high energy

  • Second detector placed to solve the ambiguity on the signal

  • The gammas will deposit most of the energy aroundthe first hit, which we want to be the first detector, why this crystal should have a good Eg resolution.

  • Two detectors of different materials with a unique PM or APD? Optically compatible


Detector spectral response matching

Emission

Absorption

Detector spectral response matching

  • Emission and absorption spectra do not overlap » emitted light is not re-absorbed

  • Emission spectra shifted to lower energies

  • LYSO:

  • lexcitation [nm] =262, 293, 357

  • Max. lemission [nm] =398, 435

protons of 200MeV

deposit an energy of:

30mm LYSO= 67.44±1.77 MeV

20mm LaBr3= 43.50±3.11MeV

200±7MeV

(sE/E=3.5%)

200±10MeV

(sE/E=5%)


Gamma absorption

Gamma absorption

  • Minimum absorption for g ~5MeV

  • 55% of g absorbed in 30mm LYSO (Prelude)


Second conclusion

Second Conclusion

  • Protons

    • Two detectors are required to detect 300 MeV protons

    • The energy of the incident protons can be estimated with an error of ~3-4% with the LYSO + LaBr3(Ce) solution

  • Gammas

    • Most of the energy of the gammas is deposited around the first hit, why this should happen in the first layer!

    • 55% of g are absorbed in 30mm LYSO when the energy of the incident gammas is 5MeV

    • >55% of g are absorbed for E≠5MeV in 30mm LYSO

    • The rest will be absorbed in the second layer

    • If first gamma detected in second layer; event discarded

    • However, the gamma resolution in LYSO is about 6%

    • If this g-resolution is good enough one would choose LSO + LYSO as the resolution of LaBr is too good to be place as second layer.


Final conclusion

Final Conclusion

  • To obtain the optimum situation both for protons and gammas;

    • First crystal layer relatively thick and of a material with excellent gamma resolution,

       LaBr3(Ce) of 30 mm l= 380nm decaytime= 16ns

    • Second crystal layer of a material emitting at shorter wavelength and with a decay constant different in order to separate the signals and that the second detector is transparent to the first.

       LaCl3(Ce) of 150 mml= 350nm decaytime= 25ns

This will detect protons up to 280 MeV with an

proton energy resolution of the order of 2%.

One could, however, live with a much shorter LaCl3(Ce) or one could combine the LaBr3(Ce) with pure CsI as a cheaper solution.
