  7. Gaseous discharges  molecules break up • collisions with electrons • de-excitation of atoms • UV-absoprtion processes • most ionization processes need Eelectron > 10eV • breaking of chemical bonds and free radicals • formation need ~ 3-4 eV M. Titov Wire Chamber Aging • Sustained irradiation permanent degradation of operating characteristicsremains main limitation to use in high-rate experiments • deposition of polymers on anode (and/or) cathode surfaces - manifest as: • Loss of gas gain and reduction of the plateau region • Loss of energy resolution • Excessive currents • Self-sustained current discharge • Sparking Free-radical polymerization seems dominating mechanism of wire chamber aging • Chemical reactions between polymer • atoms and atoms of electrode material • Electrostatic attraction to electrode (J. Va’vra) Modification of electric field Silvia Schuh, EP/CERN

  8. to understand polymerization  study plasma chemistry Silvia Schuh, EP/CERN

  9. Implicit assumption: Aging rate R  total accumulated charge (% per C/cm) not proven for high intensity environments! Aging phenomena depend on many highly correlated: M. Titov Wire Chamber Aging • Microscopic parameters: • particle type • energies • Electron, ion, radical densities • … • Macroscopic parameters: • Gas components • (nature of gas, trace contaminants) • Gas flow & Pressure • Geometry of electrodes • and configuration of electric field • Construction materials • Radiation intensity • Gas gain, current density • Size of irradiation area Too many variables in problem ! Difficult to truly understand any present aging measurement & extrapolate it to other operating conditions! Large progress since 1986 LBL workshop Silvia Schuh, EP/CERN

  10. Malter Effect M. Titov • Malter effect induced by insulating • deposits on cathode Ions which are not neutralized at the cathode L. Malter, Phys. Rev.50(1936)48-58 Large electric field across insulating layer Electrons ‘pulled out’ from the cathode • Factors which facilitate an ignition: • Poor cathode conductivity • (some oxides are highly resistive, carbon • composite materials may not be conducting • enough - Pokalon-C, HERA-B OTR) • Highly ionizing particles or sparks Once Malter current started it will lead to high local ionization densities and initiate production of new reactive species or produce them at much larger rates  promoting polymer formation !!! When Malter effect appears apply additives immediately or disconnect ‘damaged detectors’, otherwise it will spread out through your large system Silvia Schuh, EP/CERN

  11. M. Titov High radiation levels @ LHC, HERA-B from mC/cm  many C/cm enormeous R&D done: RD-10, RD-28, RD-6, ATLAS-TRT, ATLAS-MDT, CMS CSC, HERA-B OTR, HERA-B ITR, HERA-B Muon ... Silvia Schuh, EP/CERN

  12. Gold damage effects on wires M. Titov • Straws for ATLAS TRT: • Xe/CF4/CO2 (70:20:10) • Current density ~5mA/cm • Gold etching processes appear • for different accum.charges • (0.5 - 6 C/cm) • No F-based deposits observed Possible reasons for gold damage: • Main responsible components: • reactive species produced in • CF4 avalanches (prob.HF acid) • Presence of oxygen speeds • wire damage (WO deposit) • No gold damage effects • observed for H2O < 0.1% with • Xe/CF4/CO2 up to 20C/cm • Effect depends on type of wire • (producer and production • technology) (A. Romaniouk - Aging Workshop 2001, DESY) Silvia Schuh, EP/CERN

  13. Recommendationss: Materials and gases for 'standard' detectors Existing data,obtained either from systematic outgassing studies or experience gained with detector, has only a preselective character (a list of low outgassing assembly compounds exists, that includes epoxy compounds, rigid materials, sealants, elastomers,…) There are clearly many ‘bad’ and a lot of ‘usable’ materials A material is adequate or not for a very particular detector type and operating conditionstest to match your specific requirements Do not introduce bad components by unadequate assembly procedures (no quality checks, no personnel training, greasy fingers, polluted tools) No spontaneously chosen materials should be installed in the detector or in the gas system in the last moment, before the start of real operation Building of large detector needs a lot of communication and sharing of know how of all people in the business If you want to test the cleanliness of your gas system: install MSGC in your gas system, if it will survive  don’t worry M. Titov (B. Schmidt, M. Capeans, F. Sauli - Aging Workshop 2001, DESY) Silvia Schuh, EP/CERN

  14. Recommendations & Conclusions M. Titov New generation of high-rate experiments demand a higher radiation hardness than available from conventional mixtures (<< 1C/cm) Ar/CO2 -conventional backup mixture works up to ~C/cm (sensitive to impurities) Hydrocarbons are not trustable for long-term high-rate experiments Only limited choice of gases can be used: noble gases, CO2, CF4 and traces of H20, alcohols No CF4 free mixtures are able to tolerate doses up to ~10 C/cm Ar(Xe)/CF4/CO2 mixtures are the most attractive candidates for high-intensity environments !!! Very high aggressiveness of dissociative products from CF4 Gold damage effects were observed operating in Xe/CF4/CO2 !!! Presence of large amount of CF4in the mixture does not necessarily ensure good aging properties Fundamental problem: Cannot do realtime test  ? How to learn about long-term aging behaviour in reasonable time?  Build a full-size prototype detector  Expose full area of detector to real radiation profile (particle types!)  Choose your gases and materials very carefully  Vary all parameters systematically (gas gain, irradiation intensity, gas flow,…) and verify assumptions  If you observe unexpected results, understand reason Reproduce your results Need for a Global Universal Aging R&D Facility ???

  26. X-ray Polarimetry with Micro Pattern Gas Detectors R. Bellazzini • definite test of strong field • gravity near very compact sources: • Black Hole binaries, Neutron Stars, • microquasars… • Unlike spectral data, polarization • data strongly affected by GR • effects According to Nature….. “ the work is highly significant for high energy astrophysics and astronomy in general. X-ray polarimetry is a unique probe of particle acceleration in the universe. It will provide a new tool for studying the fascinating and poorly understood jet sources. The instrumentation described here will very likely revolutionize this area of study …..” Silvia Schuh, EP/CERN

  48. HPDs for CMS: Conclusions • Conclusions: • 5 years ago, no existing technology could satisfy our specifications. • Development project was initiated with one Company - DEPwith backup plans which included Hamamatsu and Litton • Rigorous evaluation must include accelerated aging and test beamsand enough prototype detectors to understand the yield. • The anticipated problems are not the ones that really bite you. • The necessary R& D takes time! • HPD subsystem approached “critical path” in CMS Project last year. • Final Result: CMS HCAL gets what it needs (so we can find the Higgs) and a better product is offered to the general public.

  49. Idea: detect visible light with stable operation in gas atmosphere Difficulties: cleanliness tiny impurities degrade photocathode Q.E. proper clean gas system (S. Majewski, Preprint CERN-IP/83-89, 1983)  photocathode protection by ~200Å CsI film or CsTe photocathode (T. Francke et al. IEEE 2001) photon feedback discharges due to photon & ion feedback: Ag=1 g … prob to create a secondary e- from cathode A… gas gain ordinary gaseous detectors g<10-6 high-eff photocathodes sensitive to visible light g<10-2  max achievable gain < 102 suppress photon & ion feedback!
