Calibration of Super-Kamiokande using an electron LINAC

Published

Journal Article

In order to calibrate the Super-Kamiokande experiment for solar neutrino measurements, a linear accelerator (LINAC) for electrons was installed at the detector. LINAC data were taken at various positions in the detector volume, tracking the detector response in the variables relevant to solar neutrino analysis. In particular, the absolute energy scale is now known with less than 1% uncertainty. © 1999 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
