New Opportunities with Large-Area Picosecond Photo-Detectors

Speaker: Andrey Elagin, University of Chicago

When: April 4, 2019 (Thu), 03:30PM to 04:30PM (add to my calendar)
Location: PRB 595
Hosted by: Indara Suarez

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.
