Abstract

The new SuperKEKB collider will be an upgrade of the existing KEKB electron-positron asymmetric collider, with a target luminosity of 8×1035cm-2s-1, about 40 times greater than the previous one. The accelerator upgrade is based on the novel low-emittance "nanobeams" scheme. The detector will also be upgraded to cope with the higher luminosity, pile-up and occupancy. We report on the development of the new pure CsI calorimeter for the forward region. An intensive R&D has been carried out to study the performance of pure CsI crystals with Avalanche Photodiodes readout. Results on the signal to noise ratio for different sensors and front end electronics configurations will be presented. A matrix of 16 crystals has been tested with the electron beam at the BTF facility in Frascati. Results in terms of energy resolution of this prototype will also be discussed. © 2015.
