Detector Optimization

NESTOR - Part of a Twisted Tower (2 rings of PMT's)


Add 1 ring of PMT's to the
tower we are constructing now

5m interfloor spacing

Twist
NOTE
A water Cherenkov in the
SEA has the advantage
over other detectors that
events can easily be
reconstructed if they
interact outside the
instrumented volume,
therefore:
The fiducial volume
is much larger than
the instrumented one
and
one can have an active veto
