LCD Calorimeter Design Issues

Calorimetry for jets

Calorimetry for jets

  • At NLC energies almost all physics events produce high mass particles (W, Z, t, H?,?)

  • Their most likely decay modes are into hadronic jets of charged and neutral final state particles.

  • Reconstructing the high mass particles accurately requires accurately measuring these final state particles.

  • Charged particles within tracker acceptance will be well measured.

  • The challenge is the neutrals and the forward charged particles.

Unprecedented opportunity

Unprecedented opportunity

  • The parameter space of calorimeter design optimization is large.

  • Shower simulations are cpu intensive.

  • Recent advent of cheap computing power offers the opportunity to fully explore the design parameter space.

Tools required

Tools required

  • One wants to be able to rapidly and easily ask and answer questions with simulations.

  • Need a flexible simulation tool (Gismo, Geant) and a large cpu batch farm.

  • Need many people who can commit enough time to do serious studies.

  • Shower simulation programs (EGS, Gheisha) verified with test beam data.

G.Bower - Chicago LCD Workshop


Gheisha problems

Gheisha problems

  • The Gheisha hadronic shower simulation has been very widely used in HEP for many years.

  • We discovered numerous coding errors in the program’s logic (not in physics models).

  • We have acquired quite a bit of anecdotal evidence that other users have found that Gheisha fails to correctly simulate real detector data.

Example gheisha problems

Example Gheisha Problems

  • 2 GeV anti-proton on active dense hydrogen target deposits ~ 7GeV of ionization energy.

  • Large disparity between deposited ionization energy of pion and proton.

  • Non-conservation of energy in pi-nucleon interaction.

  • No charge exchange for pi-< 200MeV, too low for pi+<1GeV (no illustrative plot below).

Result of fixing errors

Result of fixing errors

  • Energy distributions are more gaussian.

  • LCD resolutions and linearity improved.

  • BUT this proves nothing until the old and fixed versions of Gheisha are tested against real detector data.

Caveat on pi improvements

Caveat on pi improvements

  • The L detector improvements are entirely due to fixes in Gheisha.

  • The S detector improvements are partially due to a different technique for determining sampling fractions.

  • Old way: same sampling fraction used for both em and had showers

  • New way: different sampling fractions for em and had showers.

Back to the design study program

  • Goal: build an EM Cal and reconstruction software that can isolate individual photons.

  • Goal: build EM and Had Cals and reconstruction software that can isolate individual hadronic showers and identify which showers are due to neutral hadrons.

  • Goal: minimize error in measuring shower energies.

  • Goal: minimize error in measuring location of showers.

Refinement of gamma isolation

  • Further studies have shown increasing the cell energy threshold narrows the shower size and allows significant improvement in isolation rates (which are already very good).

Summary

Summary

  • Establishing a validated accurate hadronic shower simulation program is absolutely essential for Had Cal studies.

  • Isolation of gammas is easy.

  • Isolation and measurement of neutral hadronic showers is main job of Had Cal and needs much work.

  • Optimization of design requires study of a very large parameter space.

  • Tests of optimization should be against specific important benchmark physics measurements.
