Cherenkov Detector for Proton Flux Measurement for UA9 project

Abstract

Report about the development of the device called Cherenkov detector for proton flux measurement (CpFM) for the LUA9 project is presented. This device is going to be installed in the LHC collimation area as a monitor of the secondary beam, produced by the bent crystal inserted in the proton halo. By measuring the number of Cherenkov light produced by the protons in the quartz radiator we expect 5 % precision of particle counting, for around 100 incoming protons. Geant4 based simulation of different CpFM configurations and first tests with injected light and cosmics are discussed.
