Electromagnetic physics

Goals of WP-2: Electromagnetic physics

  • Compare electron and muon test-beam data of the LHC experiments to G4/FLUKA/(G3). All relevant sub-detectors should be tested
  • Interact and iterate with G4 and FLUKA physics experts until required precision is achieved (see WP-1)
  • Return uncertainties and discrepancies to WP-1
  • Understand strengths and weaknesses of G4 vs FLUKA
  • Define one or more "optmised and recommended" physics lists and parameters (e.g. range cuts, etc.) for the various LHC detector types, as a result of technical performance vs physics performance
  • Compare G4/FLUKA for simple benchmark geometries and materials and single incident particles of various energies
