Material analysis

  • Document current analysis (look back at PREX analysis by Caryn and MOLLER analysis by Chandan)
  • List of materials:
    • DenseCrete 5.21 g/cc (has Fe oxides - may not want near beamline) denseCrete
    • RadCrete Uses magnetite (iron ore)
    • PittHDcrete uses iron-based ores or steel aggregate
    • NelcoHDcrete
    • concrete with galena aggregate docDBlink (galena is lead ore)
    • If these don't contain a Barite mix we should look for one to include in our studies
  • Re-run analysis for new materials and summarize findings

Needed detectors

  • US of target: Moller polarimeter, Compton, Front of SBS bunker
  • between target and 1st Pb wall
  • plane right US of Hybrid (will make kryptonite for these simulations)
  • detectors will be placed in the parallel world
