Speaker

Michael Mooney (Colorado State University)

Description

The accumulation of positive ions in a LArTPC located on the surface can distort the electric field and the reconstructed particle trajectories. It is critical to understand and correct for the space charge effects in order to achieve the desired spatial and calorimetric resolutions in the LArTPC. This talks will present the measurement of space charge effects using cosmic ray muons in ProtoDUNE-SP.
