The simulation relies on elementary cross sections (electron–atom and electron–molecule) and incorporates, in order to compute the gas scintillation, the reaction/quenching rates (atom–atom and atom–molecule) of the first 41 excited states of xenon and the relevant associated excimers, together with their radiative cascade. The results compare positively with observations made in pure xenon and its mixtures with CO2 and CF4 in a range of pressures from 0.1 to 10 bar. This work sheds some light on the elementary processes responsible for the primary and secondary xenon-scintillation mechanisms in the presence of additives, that are of interest to the OTPC technology" , "dc.description.sponsorship": "The NEXT Collaboration acknowledges support from the following agencies and institutions: the European Re- search Council (ERC) under the Advanced Grant 339787- NEXT; the Ministerio de Econom´ıa y Competitividad of Spain under grants FIS2014-53371-C04 and the Severo Ochoa Program SEV-2014-0398; the GVA of Spain un- der grant PROM- ETEO/2016/120; the Portuguese FCT and FEDER through the program COMPETE, project PTDC/FIS-NUC/2525/2014 and UID/FIS/04559/2013; the U.S. Department of Energy under contracts number DE-AC02-07CH11359 (Fermi National Accelerator Labo- ratory) and DE-FG02-13ER42020 (Texas A&M); and the University of Texas at Arlington" , "dc.format.mimetype": "application/pdf" , "dc.language.iso": "eng" , "dc.publisher": "Elsevier" , "dc.relation.isformatof": "Versió postprint del document publicat a: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.nima.2017.08.049" , "dc.relation.ispartof": "© Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research Section A: Accelerators, Spectrometers, Detectors and Associated Equipment, 2018, vol. 877, p. 157-172" , "dc.relation.ispartofseries": "Articles publicats (D-EMCI)" , "dc.rights": "Tots els drets reservats" , "dc.subject": "Física nuclear -- Instruments" , "dc.subject": "Nuclear physics -- Instruments" , "dc.subject": "Detectors de radiació" , "dc.subject": "Nuclear counters" , "dc.title": "Microscopic simulation of xenon-based optical TPCs in the presence of molecular additives" , "dc.type": "info:eu-repo/semantics/article" , "dc.rights.accessRights": "info:eu-repo/semantics/openAccess" , "dc.type.version": "info:eu-repo/semantics/acceptedVersion" , "dc.identifier.doi": "https://doi.org/10.1016/j.nima.2017.08.049" , "dc.identifier.idgrec": "027326" , "dc.type.peerreviewed": "peer-reviewed" }
