(GEANT Montecarlo) b) Same event after digitization and hit finding algorithm. The gray scale of each pixel is proportional to the deposited charge. The resolution in the horizontal axis (drift direction) is 0.4 mm, and in the vertical axis is 3 mm (wire pitch). The projected track length is about 3 cm. The main electron energy is 7 MeV. The associated Compton energy is 2 MeV and the associated multiplicity is M=3. Assumed threshold for single Compton electron 150 keV The off-line selection between elastic and absorption events is based on the energy of the main electron (primary track) and on the total associated energy and multiplicity of secondary tracks (Compton) Slide14:  ... an other Montecarlo event (Gamow-Teller reaction) E primary electron track = 6700 keV Associated Compton energy= 2140 KeV Multiplicity of secondary tracks= 3 Compton activity limited to volume of about 50 cm radius around the primary vertex Slide15:  1 m 0.5 m e-like track ~6.5 MeV End-point 2 e-like spots from Compton conversion T600 test @ Pv: Run 785 - Evt 4 (July 22nd, 2001) 2 4 6 12 18 Drift Coord.

Slide18:  active neutrino Active neutrino allowed regions Iso-R Curves Shaded regions: Allowed solutions from Present Solar n Exp.s (Homestake, Gallex, Sage and SuperK) [90% and 95% CL] ICARUS Sensitivity: Slide19:  Conclusions The ICARUS Technology is now fully operational at experimental scale (T600 detector is presently taking data in a surface test). After many years of technological development, it may start acting as a new, high resolution, real-time “player” in the Solar-n “game” (after installation in the GranSasso underground site). Two solar-n reactions in LAr are available, well separated in signature and available at rather large statistics for SSM model independent study. Possibility of enlarging the LAr mass at GS are under evaluation to find more about solar neutrino physics with Icarus: N.I.M. A455 (2000), 376. to find more about ICARUS:
