        Track fitting, resolution limits and detector optimisation 15m
        I am going to compare different track fitting algorithms and investigate factors limiting resolution of different track parameters in different areas of phase space (low Pt - high Pt, central-forward). Currently I have only 2 track fitting algorithms available in org.lcsim - simple circle fitter and weight matrix based (SLD-like) algorithm. I hope that Kalman filter based algorithm may be available before Vancouver and I will be able to make comparison with it also.

        Outer-Detector Tracking Studies for the SiD 15m
        We present tracking finding studies with the SODTracker package for the outer SiD tracker, and track fitting studies using Kalman filter fitters. Based on seed tracks found in the vertex tracker, the SODTracker uses an efficient propagation algorithm to find tracks in the outer detector. For optimal resolution tracks need to be fit with Kalman filter techniques, taking into account the presence of the material along the particle trajectories. We describe the status of the development of these packages, as well as results from performance studies.

        Seed-based Tracking Algorithm for SiD 15m
        One of the approaches to track finding in SiD is to identify track seeds in the silicon pixel vertex detector and then associate hits with the seeds in the silicon strip outer tracker. This talk describes tracking code developed in the org.lcsim framework that constructs track seeds from 3D hit measurements and verifies the presence of a track using the other layers of the tracker. Partiuclar attention has been played to making the algorithm sufficiently flexible to allow the study of design alternatives for SiD.

We use silicon photomultipliers in our calorimeter module to detect light in scintillator tiles guided by wavelength-shifting fibers. We observe sensitivity to single visible photons in the photomultipliers, and can discriminate photons on a time scale of under 10 ns. We are currently studying the response of our module to cosmic ray muons, as well as the performance of the wavelength-shifting fibers. Joseph Proulx

        MPGD-TPC Resolution Studies with Charge Dispersion in a Test Beam 20m
        The Micro Pattern Gas Detector (MPGD) readout TPC, proposed for the International Linear Collider (ILC), will have to measure 200 track points with a transverse resolution close to 100 microns. It will be difficult to meet the resolution goal with conventional MPGD readout techniques if 2 mm x 6 mm pads were used as was initially envisioned. Reducing the pad width to improve resolution could add significantly to the detector cost and complexity. The new MPGD readout concept of charge dispersion has been shown to achieve excellent resolution without resorting to narrower pads in cosmic ray TPC tests without a magnetic field. We have recently tested two small prototype MPGD-TPCs with charge dispersion readout in a 1 T superconducting magnet in a test beam at KEK. Transverse resolution close to 50 microns was achieved with 2 mm wide pads at 1 T for short drift distances. The dependence of resolution on drift distance was as expected from diffusion. With larger suppression of transverse diffusion at higher magnetic fields, the resolution goal of 100 microns appears feasible for the ILC TPC. The present status of charge dispersion MPGD-TPC resolution studies will be presented.

        Transition of TPC R&D to the Next Phase of Work 20m
        A Time Projection Chamber is being investigated as central tracker for the detector at the ILC. To provide a comparison and explore the potential improvements using Micro-Pattern Gas Detectors, Gas Electron Multipliers (GEM) and Micromegas (MM), compared with Multi-Wire Proportional Chambers, which have used up to now in TPCs, several small prototype chambers (diameter ca. 30cm) have been built and tested. The next step in this development will be the construction and test of a Large Prototype (diameter ca. 90 cm) with GEM and MM endplates at the EUDET facility. A brief overview of the small-prototype work and the planning for the Large Prototype will be given.

        Update on the GEM Digital HCal 20m
        To meet the requirements for precision jet energy measurements through the particle flow algorithm, the development of hadronic calorimeter technique with an unprecedented granularity is necessary. For this, UTA group has been working on developing a Digital Hadron Calorimeter using Gas Electron Multiplier (GEM) in the sensitive gap. The group has recently developed 30cmx30cm GEM foils together with 3M Inc. and have constructed a large prototype chamber with multiple readout channels. This chamber has been exposed to a high current, low energy electron beam in KAERI, Korea. We will report on these recent progress of larger GEM foil development and the preliminary result of the beam exposure data. Jae Yu

        Construction of a Hadron Calorimeter Prototype Section with Resistive Plate Chambers 20m
        We report on the progress made toward building a prototype section of a highly segmented hadron calorimeter for the ILC. The section includes 40 layers, each with the an area of 1 m^2, of Resistive Plate Chambers, interleaved with 20 mm steel plates as absorber. The section will undergo a detailed test program at the MTBF test beam at Fermilab, planned for 2008. This effort is considered an important part of the overall program of the CALICE collaboration. The main purpose of this project is a) to validate our technological approach to finely granulated hadron calorimetry using Resistive Plate Chambers, b) to validate our concept of the electronic readout system with a highly multiplexed front-end, c) to perform precision measurements of hadronic showers with unprecedented spatial resolution, d) to validate the Monte Carlo simulation of hadronic showers and e) to compare its performance with the performance of the scintillator-based tile calorimeter section currently being built by the CALICE collaboration.

        Calorimetry Plans for the 4th Concept 20m
        Abstract: The DREAM beam tests revealed that for electromagnetic showers, the energy resolution was limited by photoelectron statistics and the spatial resolution by the 7.2-cm channel size. Both problems are solved by a front-end calorimeter of 2x2x25 cm^3 PbWO4 crystals with dual readout of scintillation and Cerenkov light with SiPMs to preserve the excellent hadronic energy resolution. I will discuss bench tests done at TTU, the upcoming CERN test, and our plans for a cubic-meter module that incorporates all of our present ideas: dual-readout crystal calorimeter, triple-readout (scintillation, Cerenkov, MeV-neutrons) fiber calorimeter, including two methods for measuring the neutrons, and a possible slice test of TPC/prototype-dual-triple-muon/prototype in some kind of magnetic field.

        Reconstruction Studies for a Scintillator-Tungsten Electromagnetic 15m
        We have performed a number of reconstruction studies for an electromagnetic calorimeter with tungsten absorber and 5cm square scintillator tiles, offset by 2.5cm in alternating layers. The offset gives us nearly the same performance as a detector with 2.5cm square tiles. These studies use the SLIC/org.lcsim simulation and reconstruction framework. We have established good cluster-finding performance in 500GeV ZZ to 4-jet events, and have developed algorithms to distinguish single photons from merged pi^0 clusters at high energies, and to determine the direction of incident photons with high precision. We are investigating methods to study hadrons that interact in the EM calorimeter, and the effect of constraints on dynamic range in data acquisition on energy measurements for very high energy photons and electrons.
