Edinburgh RICH Upgrade Plans

Interest in RICH upgrade

Build from our involvement in the LHCb RICH

Steve Playfer, is moving main interest to LHCb, has hardware interest

Pete Clarke, already in LHCb, has electronics background

Scottish Universities Physics Alliance (SUPA)

6 Scottish Universities

Particle Physics in Edinburgh and Glasgowincreased collaboration in experiment and theory

SUPA2 submitted proposal to funding agency in 2008

Decision expected in 1st half of 2009

Edinburgh Particle Physics @SUPA2

Additional posts and investment in laboratory facilities

Electronics engineer, technician, fellow

Electronics laboratory kit: Pulse Generators, Logic analyser, Source meters, Oscilloscope, Arbitrary waveform generator, …

Edinburgh RICH Upgrade Plans

  • Flat-Panel-MaPMT

    • Measure properties and characteristics of device  spec. FE-chip

      • Gain and its variations, signal to noise separation, intrinsic cross-talk, magnetic field properties, shielding efficiency, QE, …

    • Reference system: video amplifier PCB  VME based QADC 64 ch.

    • Optionally: boardBeetle with Beetle1.2MA0 (limited use)256 ch.

    • Bench tests – plan to start asap

    • Testbeams

  • Electronics

    • Development of read-out electronics

    • Interest in read-out board, FPGAs, optical fibre read-out

    • No plans for developing ASICs

  • Production Phase

    • Photon-detector test facilities for RICH upgrade photon-detectors

      • Will require more than one institute

    • Production of read-out component
