UK CALICE plans

Birmingham, Cambridge, Imperial, Manchester,RAL,RHUL,UCL


Bid to funding agency

Bid to funding agency

  • Went to the funding agency in February

  • Asked for £2.5M over the next 3 years for 5 workpackages

  • Iterations between committees

  • Emerge with cut-down and delayed scheme costing £2.7M over the next 4 years

  • EuroDet makes up a lot of the shortfall

CALICE collaboration Meeting, DESY


Workpackage 1 complete the testbeam program

Workpackage 1: Complete the testbeam program

  • All institutes, with David Ward in charge

  • Analysis of test beam data from DESY, CERN and FNAL

  • Comparison with simulations (WP5)

  • Firmware and online software upgrades and maintenance

  • Contributions to data taking, running shifts, etc

CALICE collaboration Meeting, DESY


Workpackage 2 daq

Workpackage 2: DAQ

  • UCL, Cambridge, Imperial, Manchester and RHUL with Matthew Wing in charge

  • New RAs at UCL and RHUL

  • On-board dataflow (Cambridge)

  • Networking dataflow (UCL/Manchester)

  • VFE ASIC readout studies (Imperial)

  • PCI optical receiver cards for off-detector (also part or EuroDET)

CALICE collaboration Meeting, DESY


Workpackage 3 maps

Workpackage 3: MAPS

  • Birmingham, Imperial and RAL with Paul Dauncey in charge

  • Monolithic Active Pixel Sensors have detector and (binary) readout on same wafer

  • Standard CMOS fabrication – halve (?) silicon cost

  • Much higher granularity – 1 MIP/pixel. Pattern recognition being studied

  • Less/more material? Less/more heat?

  • Two rounds of sensor fabrication. First in 2006

  • Aim for Beam test with MAPS layer(s) 2008

  • New RAs (Birmingham and Imperial)

CALICE collaboration Meeting, DESY


Workpackage 4 thermal mechanical

Workpackage 4: Thermal+Mechanical

  • Manchester with Roger Barlow in charge

  • Work with École Polytechnique (and Lyon?)

  • Glue studies (literature + ageing). Radiation?

  • Thermal simulations – need information on design details

  • Thermal measurements to validate simulations + cooling design

  • Assembly robot: pattern recognition and placing for 24,000,000 pads

CALICE collaboration Meeting, DESY


Workpackage 5 simulation and physics

Workpackage 5: Simulation and Physics

  • Birmingham, Cambridge, Imperial, RHUL and UCL with Nigel Watson in charge

  • New posts at RHUL, Birmingham, Cambridge and UCL

  • Energy flow algorithms

  • Optimising global detector design

  • Support of other workpackages

  • Physics studies: benchmark analyses

CALICE collaboration Meeting, DESY


Conclusions

Conclusions

  • Lots going on over the next few years (and beyond)

  • Many new posts (split between WPs)– tell your students
