Abstract

Advancement of the CALIFA calorimeter project has reached a new milestone with the construction of the first modules of the CALIFA Demonstrator, ultimately to be integrated into the final calorimeter. Aspects and methods of detector optimisation will be discussed, along with characterisation using proton beams of 70<Ekin<230MeV at the Bronowice Cyclotron Centre (CCB) in Krakow, Poland. Features such as the support structure, crystal geometry and digital electronics represent the final versions to be employed, enabling a full test of each component's performance. A study of caesium iodide quenching over the available proton energy range has been performed, to accompany a method for proton calibration scaled from the... (More)

A study of caesium iodide quenching over the available proton energy range has been performed, to accompany a method for proton calibration scaled from the measured gamma-ray energies.
