Shinichi's slides of 28 Feb 2002:
Phenix Focus talk on the aerogel counter
(Satoshi Tagaki, 2004)
5 older references
to light-scattering measurements
Onuchin et al, PEP-N counter with wls shifter bars
NIM A419 (1998) 584.
Development of aerogel Cherenkov counters with wavelength shifters and phototubes
NIM A343 (1994) 311.
This one describes the test fixture and shows the Cherenkov ring, with very little light scattered out of the ring.

. This one also shows the result of our Monte Carlo calculations for scattered and unscattered light.
