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
