Muon Sources and Spectra in a
500GeV (e+e_) Linear Collider
Includes an ongoing study of Muons from "in flight" decays of light
mesons inside the SLAC "SD" tracking volume.
Hadronic energy leaking into the "SD" muon detector.
The following profile
plots show the fraction of energy deposited in each layer of the
calorimeters. The simulated EM-Cal is as documented (30 layers), but
the Had-Cal has an "infinite" number of identical layers so that all
the hadron energy is eventually contained. The plots are such that all
bins (EM + HAD) normalize to one (100%). The profiles are averaged over
5000 monoenergetic particles (single tracks). The integrated energy
that is absorbed beyond the designed 34 layers of the HAD-Cal is
accumulated in the 35th bin, as the percentual leaked energy.
