Paper Abstract

One of the leading candidate technologies being considered for use in the forward region at both the Superconducting Supercollider and the Large Hadron Collider is liquid scintillating fiber spaghetti calorimetry in which the fibers are constructed using liquid scintillator as the core in combination with a tube or channel with a lower refractive index for the cladding. In this report, R&D results on some of the most critical issues will be reviewed, including findings concerning attenuation lengths and radiation damage. Results from in situ tests used to study liquid fiber performance while in an intense radiation environment are also discussed.
