The MEG liquid xenon calorimeter
The MEG experiment at PSI, starting data taking this year, searches for the muon decay into one electron and one photon with a sensitivity to branching ratios around 10-13, two orders of magnitude better then the present best experimental limit. To reach this goal a new kind of large acceptance, large mass (roughly 2.2 Tons) calorimeter based on liquid xenon scintillation light was developed. Several calibration techniques developed to monitor the calorimeter behavior during all the experiment data taking will be shown together with the experimental resolutions obtained.
