The Electron-Muon Ranger (EMR) is a totally active scintillator
2
detector (TASD) to be installed in the muon beam of the Muon
3
Ionization Cooling Experiment (MICE) - the R&D project for the future
4
neutrino factory. The EMR is made of 48 intersecting layers. Each
5
layer consists of 59 triangular scintillator bars. Each bar
6
incorporates a wave-length shifting (WLS) fiber that collects light
7
emitted by the scintillator. At the faces of each bar the WLS fiber is
8
coupled to a light guide that transfers light to a PMT. Scintillatior
9
bars are read out at both sides, one side is connected to a
10
single-channel PMT and the other - to the 64-channel PMT. The
11
granularity of the detector allows us to identify tracks and measure
12
particle ranges and shower shapes. The EMR will be installed at the
13
very end of the MICE cooling channel and will stop and measure all
14
outgoing particles. Currently it is being built at the University of
15
Geneva and it is planned to install it in MICE by the end of 2012.
