Muon reconstruction in Double Chooz

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


We describe a muon track reconstruction algorithm for the reactor anti-neutrino experiment Double Chooz. The Double Chooz detector consists of two optically isolated volumes of liquid scintillator viewed by PMTs, and an Outer Veto above these made of crossed scintillator strips. Muons are reconstructed by their Outer Veto hit positions along with timing information from the other two detector volumes. In the ideal case of a through-going muon intersecting the center of the detector, the resolution is ∼40mm in each transverse dimension.
