Here, it is assumed that the fibres are single clad, producing 18 photoelectrons per MeV, as in the first prototype detector setup.
A 1 mm Scintillating Fibre Tracker Readout by a Multi-anode Photomultiplier
With respect to the design of Section 6.2, the same fibre packing was used but the fibres have been replaces with 0.7 mm diameter double clad fibres, producing 28 photoelectrons per MeV (see Fig. 47).
A 1 mm Scintillating Fibre Tracker Readout by a Multi-anode Photomultiplier
The resolution can be seen to be significantly improved with the increase in light yield and smaller channel width, compared to the 1 mm single clad fibre trackers in the previous sections.
A 1 mm Scintillating Fibre Tracker Readout by a Multi-anode Photomultiplier
The double-clad, square, 1 mm fibres are arranged such that distance of the track from the channel center should be correlated to the amount of scintillator crossed in that channel’s fibres.
A 1 mm Scintillating Fibre Tracker Readout by a Multi-anode Photomultiplier
This configuration is comparable to the 0.7 mm round, double clad fibres.
A 1 mm Scintillating Fibre Tracker Readout by a Multi-anode Photomultiplier
The shorter blue wavelengths in the fibres also attenuate much faster than the longer wavelength and are affected more by radiation damage. • The single clad round fibres produced approximately 10 photoelectrons in 3.5 mm (18 pe/MeV) of fibre at 0 cm, as seen by the H8500 MA-PMT (22% QE).
