New Opportunities with Large-Area Picosecond Photo-Detectors
This event is part of the HEE Seminar Series.
Large-Area Picosecond Photo-Detectors (LAPPDTM) are 20×20 cm2 MCP-based photodetectors that are capable of psec-level time resolution and sub-mm position resolution. I will discuss applications of the correlated space-time measurements in particle physics ranging from particle identiﬁcation by time-of-ﬂight to searches for neutrinoless double decay. I will report on the present status of the development of LAPPD. In particular, I will focus on the Gen-II LAPPD that has a monolithic ceramic detector base with an anode capacitively coupled through a thin metal ﬁlm to an application-speciﬁc readout pattern outside of the vacuum package.
