12 18th Winter Workshop on Nuclear Dynamics 01/26/02 Edwin Norbeck University of Iowa12 Some CMS Assets CMS has excellent muon detection capabilities: –||<1.3 for barrel and ||<2.4 with endcaps. –Good mass resolution: 46 MeV for the Upsilon. –Efficient suppression of background from /K decays: Electromagnetic calorimeter at 1.3 m from beam axis. P T threshold at 3.5 GeV/c for a single muon to reach the -chambers. Large calorimeter coverage with good jet reconstruction capabilities.

23 18th Winter Workshop on Nuclear Dynamics 01/26/02 Edwin Norbeck University of Iowa23 Beam-beam interactions Hadronic nuclear interactions Electromagnetic dissociation –Ion is excited by a - nucleon interaction (mostly by the giant dipole resonance) and subsequently decays. Electron capture to form H-like ion –A two-photon process creates an electron-positron pair with the electron retained in an atomic orbit (mostly the K-shell). Magnetic-monopole production?
