calorimeter

an instrument for measuring quantities of heat, e.g. a BOMB CALORIMETER measures the heat output on burning a sample of material. Calorific values used in energetics are now measured in JOULES rather than CALORIES.

calorimeter

an instrument for measuring the amount of heat produced in any system or organism. The material is burned in the calorimeter and the heat energy produced is measured.

The detector calibration is performed in three steps: (1) relative ROC ratio measurements in which a standard calorimeter is placed in one beam and a monitor detector is placed in the other beam and then the two detector outputs are compared; (2) the standard calorimeter is replaced by the DUT to be calibrated and the two detector outputs are compared; then (3) the first step is repeated.

The project will address both software aspects, with the development of innovative and dedicated algorithms for event reconstruction in 5 dimensions (space-time and energy), and hardware aspects, with the study of microchannel plates as candidate sensitive detector for a dedicated fast timing layer, eventually embedded in a preshower, to assist the calorimeters in single particle and photon timing.
