Supervised learning of photoelectron counting in scintillator-based dark matter experiments

29 Oct 2019 Bhattacharya Kolahal Jackson Christopher

Many scintillator based detectors employ a set of photomultiplier tubes (PMT) to observe the scintillation light from potential signal and background events. It is important to be able to count the number of photoelectrons (PE) in the pulses observed in the PMTs, because the position and energy reconstruction of the events is directly related to how well the spatial distribution of the PEs in the PMTs as well as their total number might be measured...
