Abstract:
Old NOvA Note 28 - An Alternative Version of a Liquid Scintillator Detector: Totally Active Configuration (Originally posted 21-Feb-2004) I suggest an alternative design for the NuMI off axis detector based on segmented liquid scintillator with minimum amount of passive material, “a poor man’s liquid argon detector”. A specific design is suggested as a convenient means of studying physics performance, cost, and construction issues. The first look suggests that the cost for such a detector, with a fiducial mass about half of the baseline detector, would be very comparable to the current baseline detector. I urge more intensive and broader investigation of this option since such a configuration might provide a significantly higher efficiency for ne detection with lower background.
