This paper describes the Monte Carlo program used for the simulation of antiproton interactions at intermediate energy inside a brass streamer-tube tracking calorimeter, to be used in a search for antimatter in cosmic rays, in the high atmosphere. The calorimeter is sensitive in the kinetic-energy range 100 - 5000 MeV and the Monte Carlo is tuned in this energy interval both for proton and antiproton interactions. The detector geometry, which consists of a set of plane slabs, may be easily extended to other calorimeter structures.

Abstract

This paper describes the Monte Carlo program used for the simulation of antiproton interactions at intermediate energy inside a brass streamer-tube tracking calorimeter, to be used in a search for antimatter in cosmic rays, in the high atmosphere. The calorimeter is sensitive in the kinetic-energy range 100 - 5000 MeV and the Monte Carlo is tuned in this energy interval both for proton and antiproton interactions. The detector geometry, which consists of a set of plane slabs, may be easily extended to other calorimeter structures.
