Charge measurement of cosmic rays by Plastic Scintillantor Detector of DAMPE
July 27, 2021
Plastic Scintillator Detector (PSD) of DArk Matter Particle Explorer (DAMPE) is designed to measure the charge of cosmic-rays and it servers as a veto for gamma-rays. In this work, we present some updated correction methods to further improve the quality of PSD charge measurement, especially for heavy nuclei. DAMPE has collected nearly $10$ billions events by middle of 2021, it has substantial potential to measure the spectra of cosmic ray nuclei up to hundreds of TeV energies. These measurements could largely benefit from the correction of the PSD signal.

very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
