Leah Hesla | 15 September 2011Resolved that pictures of particle jets don’t have to be fuzzy or gnarled, scientists developed the particle flow algorithm, a paradigm for effectively teasing out each particle’s energy from another’s. To make it work, researchers expanded the tracking capabilities of the detector model, enabling it to measure energies with higher precision.

14 June 2007The calorimeters for the ILC detectors have to show excellent performance if researchers want to fully exploit the physics potential of the ILC. Many processes that are unique for the physics programme of the ILC are characterised by multiple-jet production that can be reconstructed by new calorimetry techniques to very high energies with unprecedented precision. The goal is to improve the jet energy resolution already achieved by a factor of two to fulfil the physics requirements the best possible way. Hence we need to develop these novel technologies and show that they work by ‘proof of principle’.
