Abstract

Aerogel for different types of Cherenkov detectors is produced by a collaboration of Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics and Boreskov Institute of Catalysis during more than two decades. So far only the production of two sizes was possible in large numbers: 50 × 50 and 115 × 115mm 2 . This work is devoted to the development of the production technology of large scale aerogel radiators for use in the Ring-imaging Cherenkov (RICH) detectors. These detectors require additional parameters to be controlled for each aerogel tile during production. Procedures of measurement of the aerogel tiles refractive index, the light scattering length, the upper surface flatness are described.
