Development of lightweight carbon-fiber mirrors for the RICH 1 detector of LHCb

Abstract:

The design, manufacture and characterization of lightweight carbon-fiber spherical converging mirrors for the RICH 1 Cherenkov detector of the LHCb experiment at CERN are described. The mirrors need to be lightweight to minimize the material for traversing particles and fluorocarbon-compatible to avoid degradation in the C4F10 gas radiator of RICH 1. Four large-sized carbon-fiber mirrors covering a total surface area of ∼ 2 m2 were installed in RICH 1 in July 2007. The mirrors have a radius o...
