[PEM13-P30] Validation of High-energy electron detector simulator for the HEP instruments onboard Arase
Keywords:high-energy electron, Arase, Geant4
In order to deduce the distribution of incident electrons from the direction and energy detections in orbit, we have developed a detector simulator using the Geant4 toolkit. Especially contamination due to high energy particles must be considered quantitatively. We have also been working on electron beam experiments using HEP detector modules which are almost the same as the flight model in order to compare detailed simulations and experimental data.
We will present a comparison between results from the electron beam experiments and those from the detector simulator. And we will discuss its influence on the interpretation of the observational data obtained in orbit.
