Recent advancements in Micro-Pattern Gaseous Detectors: Exciting research ahead towards future experiments — •Michael Lupberger — Helmholtz-Institut für Strahlen- und Kernphysik — Physikalisches Institut — Forschungs- und Technologiezentrum Detektorphysik, Bonn, Germany
The invention of Micro-Pattern Gaseous Detectors (MPGDs), overcoming the limitation of wire-based devices, marked a new epoch in the field of gaseous detectors. MPGDs, as 2nd generation gaseous detectors, were installed with large sizes in LHC experiments within the Long Shutdown 2 upgrades - more than 20 years after their invention.
The RD51 collaboration supported this path from prototypes to large area detectors, and promotes further MPGD R&D.
Major advancements have been achieved recently, opening up novel opportunities for exciting research and future experiments: The long-standing timing limitation of planar detectors was overcome with the PICOSEC concept, achieving 17 ps time resolution. With the implementation of the VMM chip into RD51’s general Scalable Readout System, R&D support for the next decade is secured as well as new high-rate mid-size experiments are enabled. The GridPix technology with its single electron detection capability allows imaging of the fundamental particle-gas interaction and its features at a microscopic level.
These highlights will be presented, taking the prospects of the ECFA Detector R&D Roadmap and the transition from RD51 to DRDC1 into account.
