The mm challenges cerchi dell inferno

Build cylindrical detectors with similar performance as flat ones

The MM challenges (Cerchi dell'Inferno)

“Abandon all hope, you who enter here”

Achieve good spatial resolution in a 5 T transverse B field

Build large area detectors (~0.3m²) operating at high

efficiency

Develop off-detector electronics (~1.5 m)

Estimate the spark rate

(and make it ALARA)

Find some space for

detectors &

electronics

Get money

Cylindrical micromegas

Mini: 4 mm

128 mm

2 to 4 mm

Cylindrical Micromegas

Make use of the « bulk » technology (2006)

Photoresist border

→ more robust

→ PCB canbethin

Photoresist amplification spacer (~300 µm)

Mesh

PCB with strips

Cylindrical micromegas1

Cylindrical Micromegas

Performance compared to thick flat MM usingcosmics

Thick detector

Thin detector

→ similar performance as thick detectors

MicromegasCLAS collaboration meeting, 09/03/2011 S.Procureur


Spatial resolution in 5 t

Spatial resolution in 5 T

X tiles of Barrel Micromegas are sensitive to the Lorentz angle of driftingelectrons

x = h tanθ = h v B / E

h

→ minimize h (but less signal)

→ use heaviergas (but more sparks)

x

→ increase E field (but lowertransparency)

→  ~ 220 µm if  canbelowered down to 20°

Garfield simulation

MicromegasCLAS collaboration meeting, 09/03/2011 S.Procureur


Spatial resolution in 5 t1

Spatial resolution in 5 T

Test to validate Garfield simulation with a Micromegas in dvcsmagnet (Hall B)

→ use of a focused UV laser to extractelectrons

from the drift electrode

Garfield validated,  canbe as low as 20°

Large area detectors

Large area detectors

Full size Y prototypes have been builtat CERN

→ doubled area compared to COMPASS

→ Cdet ~ 25 nF, Cstripfrom 90 to 120 pF (canbereduced)

50x60 cm²

1400 channels

→ 90% of strips OK (1st proto!)

Scan with Fe55 source

→ ready to buildthemat Saclay

Electronics

Electronics

The limitedspacerequires an off-detector electronics → long cables

→ initial cableswere 160 pF/m (FLEX)

→ Iraklifound 70 pF/m (Hitachi)

→ Ccab = 105 pF ~ Cstrip

→ Significanteffect on S/B (~50%)

→ Needs 10 V more to becompensated

Spark rate studies

Spark rate studies

Activitystarted in 2009

→ simulation: try to relate sparkswith large

energydepositswith Geant4 (Gemc)

→ spark condition: Nel ~ 107 (Raether)

→ Quantitativelyreproduces (few) existing data

→ Explainsgaseffect & givepredictions (bulk)

Spark rate last mysteries

Spark rate – last mysteries

2 observations cannotbereproduced by the naive simulation

→ effect of the longitudinal 5 T field

→ spark suppression with the MM-GEM detectors

→ stronghint for significanteffect of transverse diffusion

 new spark condition: critical surface charge density

→ explains all effectsseenwith MM-GEM:

→ large suppression withmoderate GEM gains

→ effect of trans. diff. onlyathigh GEM gains

→ change of slopeathigh GEM gain
