Studies with a Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber: by Michael Schenk

By Michael Schenk

Michael Schenk evaluates new applied sciences and strategies, similar to cryogenic read-out electronics and a UV laser procedure, built to optimise the functionality of huge liquid argon time projection chambers (LArTPC). among others, the writer stories the uniformity of the electrical box produced through a Greinacher high-voltage generator working at cryogenic temperatures, measures the linear power move (LET) of muons and the longitudinal diffusion coefficient of electrons in liquid argon. the consequences are received by way of analysing occasions caused via cosmic-ray muons and UV laser beams. The reviews are performed with ARGONTUBE, a prototype LArTPC in operation on the collage of Bern, Switzerland, designed to enquire the feasibility of float distances of as much as 5 metres for electrons in liquid argon.
