European Semi-Digital Hadronic Calorimeter


One of the innovative concept to be fully tested by the CALICE collaboration is the one of a semi-digital hadronic calorimetry where the deposits from the hadronic showers are recorded with a fine (11 cm cells, 40-50 layers) granularity with only a coarse energy information (2 - 3 thresholds). Based on gaseous sensor (GRPC or MicroMegas chambers) the proposed detector also includes, for the first time a memory capable, detector embedded readout chips.

This page present the effort of the european groups toward the construction and beam test of a full 1 m prototype, including most of the dependancies implied by the running at the ILC, totalling 400000 channels.

The readout will be done with embedded ROC able to store the hits above 3 thresholds for 64 channels (verif DIRAC), with very low consumption (using power pulsing techniques)

Presentation in conference.

ILC dependancies

  • low consumption
  • Zero suppression
  • Differed readout
  • Excellent geometric resolution, suitable for the PFA techniques adopted by the ILD and SiD concepts.
