  1. WG1 Satellite session on practical use of resistivecoatings P. Colas • Use of resistivecoatings for: • Spreading the charge to improveresolutionwhilelimiting the number of electronicreadoutchannels • StabilizingRPCs • Stabilizing Micromegas detectors (spark suppression) • Protectingintegrated circuits • Numerous techniques triedsince a decade or more : • Characterization of coverlays : measurement of surface resistivity, bulkresistivity and thru-resistivity

  2. Terminilogy -A Resistor is define by: -Value Ohms -Precision % -TCR ppm/Deg C -max power W or W/m2 -breakdown voltage V -Resistivity in Ohm*m -Sheet resistance or surface resistivity in Ohm/sqr -TCR: Temperature coefficient of the resistor -Cermet: is a composite material composed of ceramic (cer) and metallic (met) materials. Rui De Oliveira

  3. Rs: Sheet resistance Ω/sq Rui De Oliveira

  4. Polymer resistive pastes 1 Mohms/Sqr seems to be the limit for these polymers Rui De Oliveira

  5. Polymer Resistive foils Rui De Oliveira

  6. Jose Repond: RPC for DHCAL calorimeter Spraying glass Constraints on resistive paint Surface resistivity in the range of 1 – 5 MΩ/□ Easily applicable Resistivity not dependent on humidity (very important!!!) Paint Used commercial spray (LICRON) in the past, but new product not useful Identified some 2-component ‘artist paint’ → satisfies constraints Paint needs to be mixed appropriately and sprayed (with spraying gun) Spraying booth Built large booth to exhaust (non-toxic) fumes Movement of spraying gun controlled with step motors (~ 2minutes/plate) Spraying procedure Significant preparation needed: cleaning of glass, masking off rims, mixing paint, cleaning tools 1-botton operation Could spray up to 8 plates in one day Jose Repond - Spraying of glass plates

  7. Results Uniformity obtained by adjusting - Speeds - Distance to glass plate - Order of spraying - Air flow in booth MΩ/□ Jose Repond - Spraying of glass plates

  15. Weusedseveral techniques to measureresistivities. • May depend on voltage, pressure of the contact,… • Oftenseediscrepancies, inhomogeneities, unstabilities • Thru-resistivitysometimesinconsistentwith surface resistivity 4-point probe (Neuchatel) Circular probe Conducting tape, insulatingsubstrate lxLresistivesample = L/l ’squares’ Measureresistance, divide by number of squares Experience with resistive coatings

  16. Diagnostic tools : thermal image of the prototype with a high-resistivity layer and a lower-resistivity layer on top (N. Wyrsch, EPFL, Neuchatel) Hot spots due to leakagecurrent Experience with resistive coatings
