6/2/2014Vitaly Smirnov - Alushta20122 Radioactive exposure of HE detector Scintillator tiles of HE, which are closer to the beam, absorb the greater radioactive dose. Main aspect is to provide operation of HE calorimeters after upgrade phase II. Simulation of dose map (Gy per 500 fb-1) in HE
6/2/2014Vitaly Smirnov - Alushta20123 Radiation doses for period of time, which should provide accumulation of experimental data for integrated luminosity of 500 fb -1. It means ~10 years of LHC operation. The most irradiated part of HE corresponds to η from 2.5 to 3.0 in the first few layers of HE. Evaluation of dose in HE tiles Normal operation of HE tiles up to integral radiation level at 5 Mrad. R (cm) η

6/2/2014Vitaly Smirnov - Alushta20125 Scintillator irradiation Our recent measurements of scintillator + WLS fiber samples irradiated by electrons (E 4 MeV) SCSN-81 & Y11 10cm x 10cm x 0.4cm Relative light yield 110 Absorbed dose (Mrad) 0.15 HCAL TDR SCSN-81 & BCF-91A 10cm x 10cm x 0.4cm
6/2/2014Vitaly Smirnov - Alushta20126 Main concept How to improve radiation hardness of HE scintillators? We decided to improve light collection from more irradiated tiles. Advantages: An average path of light inside a strip becomes shorter. Length of each WLS fiber becomes shorter. Losses of light are decreased. Proposed solution: Divide tile to several strips. Each strip (width W ) has own WLS fiber in the middle.

N number of stages of optical OR. 8 light inputs from WLS fibers Light output from clear fiber go to megatile optical connector N = 3 stages
6/2/2014Vitaly Smirnov - Alushta20128 Test on electron beam 1/161/81/41/2 To define light attenuation factors with different doses of irradiation. Ten copies of each type. Radiachromic dosimeters to measure absorbed dose ( Mrad). Primary check of transparency of radiachromic dosimeters. Measurement of light yield of all samples. Measure of transmittance loss in samples. Measure of transmittance loss in WLS fibers. Radiation source is electron beam with E = 4 Mev. An irradiation of scintillator samples + WLS fibers with electrons of doses 0.5, 1, 5, 10 and 30 Mrad.

6/2/2014Vitaly Smirnov - Alushta Introduction of optical OR How to minimize the upgrade process of HE megatiles? Just use as in original scheme one clear fiber from one tile. It means a necessity to combine the light coming from several WLS fibers of tiles strips into one clear fiber. We propose to use optical OR scheme. k N - attenuation caused by optical OR. k - transmittance loss in one OR. N - number of stages of optical OR. Surfaces are cut, polished and spliced Inputs: 16 WLS fibers 8 WLS 4 WLS 2 WLS Attenuation: k 4 k 3 k 2 k 1 # of stages To Photo Detector (PD) to PD to PD to PD
6/2/2014Vitaly Smirnov - Alushta Test of optical OR Scheme for measurement loss of light in optical OR. Three samples of optical OR scheme has been made and tested. The best result of light loss in optical OR scheme is k 0.7 Values of k 0.8 are quite affordable. LED WLS fibers Clear fiber Photo Detector position1 Photo Detector position2 L=14 cm

6/2/2014Vitaly Smirnov - Alushta Conclusions 1.Series of measurements on several sets of SCSN81 scintillator + Y-11 WLS fiber with electron beam was performed and a set of experimental results was obtained: Dependence of signal amplitude vs. the sample width. Transmittance loss in scintillator and its attenuation length in dependence of absorbed dose. Transmittance loss in WLS fiber and its attenuation length in dependence of absorbed dose. Degradation factor of scintillating ability in dependence of absorbed dose. Conversion efficiency of WLS fiber in dependence of absorbed dose. Possibility of combining several WLS fibers using the scheme optical OR. Making several pieces of optical OR and measurement of transmittance loss in one optical OR. Compare of light outputs of the upgraded and standard options with equal absorbed dose. 2.It is shown that the proposed method will allow to increase the radiation hardness of most irradiated HE tiles up to 20 Mrad.
