  • Total rate on HyCal:  60 MHz

    Applied Cuts:

    •  (Ei) > 4 GeV

Count Rates, Backgroundfor Two photon Experiment

  • Cross sections typically scale as:

    A  (/10-4)2 (100 MeV/Mx)2

    • for low invariant mass we may expect higher cross sections

      ( an order of magnitude for this mass range)

  • Estimated Rate:

    We assume:

    • Electron beam current: Ie = 0.1 A = 6.25x10+11 e/sec

    • Target:  0.5% Pb target

    • Detection Efficiency: 20%

      Expect more rate vs. A’ experiment (work is in progress)

  • Background conditions expected to be better than in A’ experiment

  • Work is in progress

Summary

  • We suggest two search experiments for A’ and Scalar gauge bosons in Hall B at Jlab

    • A’  e+ e-

    • X   

  • “Ready-to-Run survey type experiments.

  • Experimental capabilities:

    • high detection efficiencies (~25 – 50%)

    • large acceptance for MA’ and Mx (15 – 300 MeV)

    • high resolution (1.3 MeV @ MA’ = 75 MeV)

    • possibility for three particle detection

  • Work in progress to optimize setup and detection capabilities.
