Muon detection in electron-positron annihilation for muon collider studies

Introduction

The LEMMA project aims to study the possibility of producing muons from $e^{+}e^{-}$ annihilation process. A high intensity positron beam, with energy just above the 47.3 GeV threshold for muon pair production through $e^{+}e^{-} \rightarrow \mu^{+}\mu{-}$ process, impinging on a low $Z$ fixed target could produce muons with naturally small divergence, resulting in a low transverse emittance.

Tracker- absorbers correlation

As a first step, this analysis studied the relation between the particle's $x$ position measured by the tracker positioned before the first scintillator of the negative arm and the energy released $E_{3}$ in the central LG unit. Fig. 1 shows the average electron (muon) released energy $\left\langle E_{3}\right\rangle$ in the central LG unit in blue (green), as a function of the $x$ position measured by the tracker.

Figure 1: Average energy released $\left\langle E_{3}\right\rangle$ by 22 GeV electrons (blue, on the top) and muons (green, on the bottom) in the central LG unit as a function of the local $x$ position measured by the tracker. Vertical solid lines are used to mark the region 6 cm < x < 9 cm considered for further analysis.

HOrizontal Smart Absorber efficiency

The efficiency of each HORSA active layer has been studied using a muon beam with energy $E_{0}$.The efficiency of each HORSA active layer $j = 5, 6, 7, 8$ is defined as: $$\varepsilon_{j}=\frac{N_{4}}{N_{3}\left(j\right)}$$ where $N_{4}$ represents the number of events with signals in time coincidence in all four layers while $N_{3} (j)$ represents the number of events with signals in time coincidence in all the layers but the $j$ one. The overall efficiency of the HORSA absorber is defined as $$\varepsilon_{\text{HORSA}}=\prod_{j=5}^{8}\varepsilon_{j}$$

$j$ $\varepsilon_{j}\left(\%\right)$ $\varepsilon_{HORSA}\left(\%\right)$
5$ 97.04\pm0.56$$84.2\pm1.4$
6$ 95.50\pm0.66$
7$ 93.26\pm0.98$
8$ 97.44\pm0.79$
