Abstract

The ALICE experiment at CERN is focused on studying relativistic heavy ion collisions and one of ALICE’s primary detectors is an electromagnetic calorimeter (EMCal.) This paper describes one method of calibration of the detector. To eliminate background from photons that convert to e± pairs, geometric and timing cuts are made to associate hits in the ALICE time-of-flight (TOF) detector and EMCal.
