Development and test in liquid argon of the light readout system for the ArDM experiment


Boccone, V (2009). Development and test in liquid argon of the light readout system for the ArDM experiment. In: CIPANP 2009 - 10th International Conference on the Intersections of Particle and Nuclear Physics, San Diego, Calif., US, 26 May 2009 - 31 May 2009, 280-283.

Abstract

ArDM is a new-generation WIMP detector which will measure simultaneously light and charge from scintillation and ionization of liquid argon. Our goal is to construct, characterize and operate a 1 ton liquid argon (LAr) underground detector. The project relies on the read out of the VUV scintillation light and on the extraction of the electrons produced by ionization from the liquid into the gas phase of the detector. The light has to be converted with wavelength shifters such as TetraPhenyl Butadiene in order to be detected by photomultipliers with bialkali photocathodes. I describe the light readout system and the tests of the prototype with liquid argon in the full size detector. ©2009 American Institute of Physics
