T1004 - Dual Readout Calorimetry

The calorimetry R&D will focus on establishing a proof of concept for totally active hadron calorimetry. The initial studies will involve single (or, at most, a few) crystal or glass samples as a continuation and acceleration of on-going work using cosmic-ray muons. The purpose is to evaluate the performance of the different crystal and glass samples in combination with different light collection and readout alternatives to optimize simultaneous collection of Cerenkov and scintillation light components for application of the Dual Readout technique to total absorption calorimetry.
