Study of background and transmission properties of the KATRIN spectrometers

Wandkowsky, Nancy

The KATRIN experiment will determine the effective mass of the electron anti-neutrino with a sensitivity of 200 meV. This thesis focuses on the detailed description and optimization of background and transmission properties of the spectrometers. Various physics models have been implemented into the simulation software Kassiopeia to study experimental observations by Monte-Carlo simulations. A measurement strategy has been worked out to determine the main spectrometer transmission properties.
