AbstractOwing to its high efficiency, low cost and low sensitivity to environmental gamma-rays, resistive plate chamber (RPC) is a good candidate for large area underground cosmic-ray detectors. We report in this paper such a design for the Daya Bay reactor antineutrino experiment based on calculations and simulations for the efficiency, dead space control, noise and gamma-ray backgrounds. Experimental tests are performed, and good agreements with calculations and simulations are obtained, showing that the design is appropriate. (c) 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
