Abstract

The Iron Calorimeter (ICAL) detector at INO cavern will be made of 50 kTon of magnetized steel layers, tiled with 4 m (formula presented) 2 m (formula presented) 56 mm thick plates, alternating with layers of RPCs. The total number of (formula presented) m (FORMULA PRESENTED) RPCs required will be about 29000. However, during the assembly of RPCs, handling the (formula presented) m (FORMULA PRESENTED) normal float glass of thickness 3 mm is both difficult and risky and will be much easier to handle RPCs with toughened or tempered glass. This paper presents a comparison of the characteristics, such as noise rate, dark current, muon detection efficiency and time resolution, of normal and hardened glass RPCs.
