  1. ITS Upgrade Proposal CERN, LHCC Upgrade Session, 20 March 2012 L. Musa for the ALICE Collaboration Outline • Overview on ALICE Upgrade Strategy • ITS Upgrade Proposal • Physics motivations and design goals • Detector performance studies • Benchmark channels • Technical implementation and R&D roadmap • Conclusions

  2. Beyond the ALICE approved physics programme • Progress on the characterization of QGP properties is made by studying • multi-differential observables: • Flavour, Centrality, Transverse momentum, Reaction plane, … • This requires high statistics (high luminosity) • Physics plans focused on physics observables where ALICE is unique at (PID, low material thickness, precise vertexing down to low pt, …), such as • precision measurements of spectra, correlations and flow of heavy flavour hadrons and quarkonia at low transverse momenta • precision measurements of low-mass lepton pairs emitted from the QGP • energy loss and flavour tagging of partons in the QGP via g-jet and jet-jet with hadron PID • search for the existence of exotic objects such as the H dibaryon or L-neutron bound states and systematic study of production of anti-matter •  This requires high statistics and precision measurements • Standard trigger strategy not applicable in most cases

  3. ALICE Upgrade Strategy • “ALICE at High Rate”  submitted to LHCC • A document has been prepared defining the physics goals and the experimental approach for a run of at least 10 nb-1 with PbPb • run ALICE at high rates, 50kHz Pb-Pb (i.e. L = 6x1027 cm-1s-1), with minimum bias (pipeline) readout ( max readout with present ALICE set-up ~500Hz) • Improve vertexing and tracking at low pt The Pb-Pb run would be complemented by p-Pb and pp running • It entails building • New beam pipe • New silicon tracker (scope and rate upgrade) • High-rate upgrade for the readout of TPC, TRD, TOF, CALs, Muons, DAQ/HLT • This will allow a data driven readout architecture with continuous readout and event selection done by software algorithms in the online systems (DAQ/HLT) • Targets LS2

  4. ALICE at High Rate - Readout Architecture • 50 kHz Pb–Pb collisions inspected with the least possible bias with online event selection based on topological and PID criteria •  max readout with present ALICE set-up ~500Hz • HI run 2011: online cluster finding data compression factor of ~5 for TPC • Two HLT scenarios for the upgrade: • Partial event reconstruction: Factor of 5 (in use) → Rate to tape: 5 kHz • Full event reconstruction: Overall data reduction by a factor of 25 → Rate to tape: 25 kHz • min. bias event size ~20 MB  ~4-1 MB after data reduction • throughput to mass storage: 20 GB/s. • Event rate reduction from 50kHz to 5kHz (25kHz) can only be reached with online event reconstruction and selection

  5. Readout and Online Systems Architecture Readout scheme Fast Trigger Processor (FTP) Event Processors (EPN) L1 L2 L3 inter. L0 t0+10ms t0+ ~1s t0+ >10s t0 t0+ ~1ms FTP  Fast Trigger Processor FLP  First Level Processor EPN Event processor Node

  6. ALICE Upgrade Strategy • Contextually, submitted to LHCC the CDR for the ITS upgrade which is an essential part of the General Strategy • Furthermore, three major proposals are under consideration to extend the scope of ALICE: VHMPID, MFT, and FOCAL (a decision will be taken by September) • New high momentum PID capabilities • b-tagging for low pt J/psi and low-mass di-muons at forward rapidities • Low-x physics with identified g/p0 • Meanwhile, R&D program continues for the different proposed upgrades, and the negotiations with the Funding Agencies to define the resource boundaries have been launched

  7. ALICE New Inner Tracking System Conceptual Design Report

  8. Physics measurments – examples where ITS plays a key role • Study the thermalization of heavy quarks in the QGP • Measurement of baryon/meson for charm (Lc /D) and possibly for beauty (Lb /B) for pt > 2 GeV/c • Elliptic flow for B and HF baryons (Lc , Lb ?) for pt > 2 GeV/c • Possible in-medium thermal production of charm quarks (D down to pt = 0) • Study of the quark mass dependence of energy loss in the QGP • Nuclear modification factors RAA of the pt distributions of D and B mesons separately • Beauty via displaced D0 Kp • Beauty via displaced J/y  ee

  9. Heavy Flavour – Experimental measurement Topological Identification of open charm D0 K-+ Impact parameter resolution • Analysis based on decay topology and invariant mass technique • Essential selection cuts • impact parameter, distance of closest approach • distance of secondary vertex to primary vertex • pointing angle • High precision tracking (ITS+TPC) • p/K/p identification (TPC+TOF)  reducing • background at low pT

  10. Heavy Flavour – Experimental measurement Current detectors: • ALICE uniqueness: PID ( charm); low pt (low material budget); • Present limits: • charm difficult for pt0 (background is too large); • resolution not sufficient for charmed baryons (Lcct=1/2 D0=1/5 D+); • Lc impossible in Pb-Pb collisions , at the limit in pp (only high pt); • Lb impossible in Pb-Pb collisions (insufficient statistics and resolution) • B/D separation difficult, especially at low pt (e PID + vertexing); • indirect B measurement via electrons; • CMS limits: • much larger material thickness (even after upgrade) • minimum pt at about 5-6 GeV/c? • no PID  low pt charm and Lcvery difficult;

  11. Design goals • 1. Improve impact parameter resolution by a factor of ~3 • Get closer to IP • Reduce material budget • Reduce pixel size • 2. High standalone tracking efficiency and pt resolution • Increase granularity • Increase radial extension • 3. Fast readout • readout of Pb-Pb interactions at > 50 kHz and pp interactions at > 2MHz • 4. Fast insertion/removal for yearly maintenance • possibility to replace non functioning detector modules during yearly winter shutdown

  12. How to improve the impact parameter resolution • I) Get closer to the IP • radius of innermost pixel layer is constrained by central beam pipe • Present beam pipe: ROUT = 29.8 mm, DR = 0.8 mm •  • New reduced beam pipe: ROUT = 19.8 mm, DR = 0.8 mm • II) Reduce material budget (especially inner layers) • present ITS: X/X0 ~1.14% per layer •  • target value for new ITS: X/X0 ~0.3 – 0.5% per layer (STAR HFT 0.37% per layer) •  reduce mass of silicon, electrical bus (power and signals), cooling, mechanics • III) Reduce pixel size • currently 50mm x 425mm • monolithic pixels  O(20mm x 20mm), • hybrid pixels  O(30mm x 30mm), state-of-the-art O(50mm x 50mm)

  13. How to improve standalone tracking efficiency and pt resolution • Higher granularity • increase number of layers in the outer region (seeding) and inner region (high occ.) • present detector: 6 layers, optimized for track matching with TPC • new detector: 7 layers (assuming 95% efficiency) • increase granularity of central and outer layers • pixels 20mm x 20mm • Combination of pixels (20mm, 20mm) and strips (90mm, 20mm) • Increase radial extension • present detector: 39mm – 430mm • new detector: 22mm – 430mm(*) (CDR value) • (*) increasing outer radius to 500mm results in a 10% improvement in pt resolution

  14.

  45. BACKUP SLIDES

  46. ITS PID performance 4 layers of Hybrid + 3 layers of strips 7 layers of MAPS 4 layers silicon strips Pion to kaon separation (black circles) and proton to kaon separation (red triangles) in unit of sigma in the case of 4 layers of 300 μm (left panel), 7 layers of 15 μm (central panel) and 4 layers of 100 μm + 3 layers of 300 μm (right panel) silicon detectors. The horizontal lines correspond to a 3 sigma separation.

  47. Some examples of physics performance (BD0) Further optimization In progress This will provide a direct measurement of RAA for charm (prompt D) and b (non-prompt D) Measuring D mesons from pt=2 GeV/c gives access to B meson from pt=0 GeV/c (due to the decay kinematics)

  48. Requirements on integration time and time resolution At high interaction rate (e.g. p-p at 2 MHz, Pb-Pb at 50 kHz) significant pile-up in the detector occurs depending on the integration time (or time resolution). This causes two separate problems for the reconstruction and analysis of collected data: the reconstruction efficiency drops due to the ambiguity of track-cluster association at inner layers distinguishing triggered event from surrounding pile-up interactions Same as the plot on the left but with three fast layers: e.g. 1, 2 and 6 Reconstruction efficiency for triggered Pb-Pb central collision with increasing number of pile-up collisions

  49. Requirements on integration time and time resolution, cont’d • Tracks can be correctly assigned to the vertex of triggered interaction if • the vertices of pile-up events are at a distance larger than 1mm from the triggered vertex • comparing its “time stamp” to trigger • Further constraints are imposed by the extraction of signal from different off-vertex decays. • for short lived particles, e.g. Λc or D0, same ∼1 mm isolation should be enough • B-mesons will require ∼1 cm isolation of the triggered vertex Problem can be solved if each track has at least one point with precise time stamp associated to trigger. For 2 MHz p-p interaction rate one (100% efficient) layer with ~1μs time resolution allows to eliminate the effect of pile-up.

  50.
