1 cbm tof requirement

1. CBM TOF requirement

  • Overall time resolution σT = 80 ps.

  • Space resolution ≤ 5 mm × 5 mm.

  • Efficiency > 95 %.

  • Pile-up < 5%.

  • Rate capability > 20 kHz/cm2.

  • Multi-hit capability (low cross-talk).

  • Compact and low consuming electronics (~65.000 electronic channels).

20 kHz/cm2

2. Low resistive silicate glass

3-4×1010Ωcm

  • The accumulated charge was 1 C/cm2, roughly corresponding to the CBM life-time over 5 year operation at the maximum counting rate.

T = 28 C°

HV = 1kV

  • Using electrodes made of semi-conductive glass is an innovative way of improving the rate capability of Resistive Plate Chambers.

  • MRPC#2 has a similar structure and working conditions than MRPC#1 but with different dimensions of the pick-up pads.

  • Such a structure provides higher signal amplitudes and smaller fluctuations, which are expected to improve the detection efficiency as well as the time resolution.


Test setup

Test setup

  • Tests were performed at GSI-Darmstadt under uniform irradiation by secondary particles stemming from proton reactions at 2.5 GeV.

  • The higher rates can be obtained by moving the RPCs up closer to the main beam.

2.5GeV


Counting rate

Counting rate

  • PMT rate: 0.8~20 kHz/cm2

  • MRPC rate: 2~30 kHz/cm2

  • Mean rate: 1.4~25 kHz/cm2

Top View

  • The beam comes in spills.

  • We take the mean of the PMT and MRPC measurements as a sound reference for rate estimates .


Time difference

Timediff =TMRPC#1-TMRPC#2


Charge distribution of mrpc 2

MRPC#2: 10-gap

  • With rate increasing, the average charge decreases, which leads to a relativity lower efficiency.


Hv scan at 800hz cm 2

HV scan at 800Hz/cm2

  • The efficiency reaches above 90% and the time resolution remains below 90ps once at the efficiency plateau.

  • By means of using more gas gaps, the 10-gap RPC shows a better performance.

MRPC#2: 10-gap

  • The efficiencies and time resolutions deteriorate with the counting rate.

  • MRPC#2 yields much better results: 90% efficiency, 85ps resolution.
