- We have continued working on essentially the same projects during the period 1991--92 as reported on in our previous progress report. That is, R&D work on a dimuon detector for RHIC and work with the group at LANL on neutron induced fission measurements using the white neutron source at LAMPF. Our work has included participation in the RD-10 experiment at the AGS to study calorimeter/absorber optimization for a RHIC experiment. We have actively participated in the setup of the apparatus, the data-taking and the subsequent data analysis. We have used the Vax computer system in our department and the eight-processor Silicon Graphics system in the GSU computer center for most of the data analysis work. We have also continued our work on Monte Carlo simulations of various configurations of absorber/calorimeters for detection of electrons and muons in RHIC experiments. We have made increasing use of the Silicon Graphics computer for our work. Each processor has approximately the same power as a Decstation 5000 and we usually have essentially exclusive simultaneous use of three of the processors. We have installed GEANT 315 and PAW on this system. Since our Vaxstation was purchased before DECWINDOWS was a standard part of the Vax software we have been unable to use the Silicon Graphics computer for doing graphics with PAW and GEANT. We are attempting to solve this problem by installing X-Windows software on our 386SX system which is connected to the campus network. Our work at Los Alamos has consisted of participation in the LAMPF run during the summer of 1991 including constructing and setting up two new neutron detectors for the experiment. These projects are discussed in further detail in this paper.
