Electric field calculation and ionization signal simulation in liquid xenon detectors for PET Huang, Zhu


Electric field calculations and ionization signal simulations in a liquid xenon detector for Positron Emission Tomography have been performed. The electric field was calculated using Opera 3D, a Finite Element Method application software. The uniformity of the electric field inside of the detector was evaluated by calculating the deviation of drifting electrons under the applied electric field. The ionization signals of the detector have been simulated. The comparison between simulation results and measurement signals was made.
