Detectors and instrumentation for the fast-developing MAGIX experiment at MESA — •Sabato Stefano Caiazza for the MAGIX collaboration — KPH Institute, Johannes-Joachim-Becher-Weg 45, Mainz, Deutschland
Within the next decade a new experiment will be built and will start to be operated at the Institut für Kernphysik at the University of Mainz, exploiting the powerful electron beam of the new MESA accelerator. MAGIX aims to be a versatile apparatus which can be used to perform a broad set of experiments at the precision frontier including, but not limited to new measurements of the proton radius, searches for dark sector particles in the MeV range and high-precision nuclear cross-section measurements. To achieve this goal all the components of the setup have to be designed and developed to the limits of the current state-of-the-art and often beyond those. In this talk I will give you an overview of the challenges we face in the development of our experiment and on the most interesting solutions we are developing to overcome them, focusing in particular on the GEM based focal plane detectors and the open jet target.
