Modern Timing Detectors in HEP — •Jörn Lange — II. Physikalisches Institut, Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, Germany
Particle detectors with precise time information are traditionally used in HEP as time-of-flight detectors. A new generation of high granularity and radiation-hard timing detectors with a precision of few tens of picoseconds is being developed for event time measurements at the High-Luminosity upgrades of the LHC experiments. By measuring the arrival time of each particle in the detector, its underlying collision vertex can be identified to suppress the background from event pileup in an environment with up to 200 collisions per proton-proton bunch crossing. This is made possible thanks to the rapid advance of new detector technologies like Silicon Low Gain Avalanche Detectors (LGADs). For the longer term future, 4D tracking detectors are being developed, which combine precise timing with the high granularity and spatial resolution of today's pixel detectors, enabling enhanced pattern recognition in high density track environments. This presentation will motivate and introduce the novel timing detectors and their technologies. New developments such as 4D-tracking and possible other applications will be discussed as well.
