Implementation of an Optical Frequency Phased Array
Using a “Truncated Mean” Method at Ice Cube
The Ice Cube experiment measures the energy path length differential (dE/dx) of the muons that result from neutrino interactions. Previous methods have only considered one large path length but this is susceptible to large errors for highly energetic muons. The “truncated mean” method segments the path length, rejects the highest 40%, and then sums the remaining resulting in an energy resolution of 0.22 in log10(É), an improvement of 26%. (Based on: R. Abbsi, et al., Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research Section A 703 190-908 (2013)).
