Performance and calibration of the ATLAS Tile Calorimeter
January 17, 2022
The Tile Hadronic Calorimeter covers the central region of the ATLAS experiment. Wavelength-shifting fibers carry the light from active plastic scintillator tiles interspersed with steel absorber plates to photomultiplier tubes. Analogue response of the photomultipliers are amplified, shaped, and digitized by a front-end electronics system that samples the signal from about 10000 channels every 25 ns and stores the data on detector until a trigger decision is received. The dynamic range of each tile covers from 30 MeV to 2 TeV. Each step of the process - from collection of scintillation light to signal reconstruction is monitored and calibrated. During LHC Run-2, high-momentum isolated muons and isolated hadrons were used to calibrate the electromagnetic and hadronic response, respectively. The time resolution was studied with multi-jet events. Results of performance studies that address calibration, stability, energy scale, uniformity and time resolution are summarized.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
