Electromagnetic calorimeter using LAr technology for FCC

Jana Faltova (CERN)


Requirements and feasibility of the electromagnetic calorimeter (ECAL) in the FCC-hh experiment will be discussed. The ECAL subdetector will have to be able to deal with unprecedented luminosities and very high pile-up. Moreover, very good energy and angular resolution for a wide range of electrons' and photons' momentum is needed in order to meet the demands based on the physics benchmarks.
A brief overview and status of the calorimeter reconstruction software, which is a part of the offline FCC software package (FCCSW), will be given.
A proposal of a high granularity ECAL using liquid Argon (LAr) / lead (Pb) technology will be presented. First results of the performance studies with the new design will be shown. Similar technologies (LAr / Pb, resp. LAr / Cu) are foreseen for the hadronic endcap, resp. forward calorimeter.
Finally, future plans including studies of different technologies (Si / W) will be mentioned.
