sep power vs mcp type

pion/kaon separation power and photon yield for different MCP types and different joining materials

  • Panda Barrel DIRC geometry configurations
  • pions and kaons @ 3.5 GeV/c
  • time-imaging reconstruction with full-simulated pdfs
  • 30k tracks for pdf generation (per each particle species); 5k for determining separation
  • ~2 mrad tracking resolution
  • 100 ps time resolution
  • QE curves
