Xvth International Conference on Calorimetry in High Energy Physics (calor2012)
Several approved experiments at Jefferson Lab for the 12 GeV era will use the proposed Solenoid Large Intensity Device (SoLID) spectrometer. Two EM calorimeters with a total area of 15 square meters are required for electron identification and electron-pion separation. The challenge is to build calorimeters that can withstand high radiation doses in high magnetic field region and bring photon signals to low field region for readout. Several types of calorimeters were considered and we are favoring Shashlyk type as a result of balancing performance and cost. Our preliminary design and simulation of SoLID EM calorimeters are presented.
