Response simulation for the scintillation detector with the silicon photomultiplier matrix as photosensor
The use of the matrices formed of silicon photomultipliers (SiPMs) to collect light in scintillation detectors will allow obtaining an image (picture) of an event. The subsequent analysis of the images provides in principle the possibility to separate different classes of events in the detector. A program for simulation of the passage of muons through the prototype of such type of detector has been developed. The investigation of the response of the detector to the muons has been carried out.
