LIP s collaboration in AMS is centered in the RICH Ring Imaging Cherenkov detector. The light emitted by charged particles with velocity greater than the speed of light in the radiator enables to reconstruct their charge and velocity The number of photons is proportional to Z 2 The Cherenkov cone opening angle is related to the velocity β, by: cos(θ c )=1/(β n).

Y SpikeTransmission The detailed description of photon scattering in aerogel is fundamental to understand the performance of the AMS RICH detector, both in what concerns the charge and the velocity reconstruction. Given the characteristics of the aerogel surfaces the Unified model, in its present implementation, does not describe accurately the direction of the Cerenkov photons after leaving the radiator. An interface class G4VBoundaryMicrofacetModel was implemented in Geant4 enabling the choice of different surface description frameworks. - AFM preliminary measurements compatible with parameters fitted from data for Geant3. - The implementation of surface mappings as a concrete class is underway. - Extension to the UNIFIED model with realistic transmission is being studied.
